Long Lake has a rich history within the sport fishery world. The presence of landlocked salmon in this waterbody draws fishers from far and wide. Under the normal marine migration pattern of Atlantic salmon, these fish will eat smaller fish such as capelin, sand lance, and herring. These menu items aren’t an option for the landlocked group, hence the importance of good quality feeder streams such as Barns Brook. The brook and its tributaries are critical spawning habitat for smelt, which figures highly in the landlocked salmon’s diet. Over 180 hectares (445 acres) of this area has been established as a high conservation site so that the fish stocks will remain sustainable for generations to come.
