KEDGWICK (GNB) – Larry’s Gulch Lodge will again be open to the public through an annual lottery draw.

“New Brunswickers have always been interested in gaining access to one of the most beautiful tourism destinations for salmon fishing in the province,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Bruce Fitch. “More than ever, this kind of activity reminds us of how lucky we are to be able to have exceptional experiences in New Brunswick. All New Brunswick fishing enthusiasts are invited to enter the draw for a two-night and three-day stay at this world-renowned lodge.”

The fishing excursion will take place from Aug. 8 to 10. There will be four winners drawn. Each winner may bring one guest. Fishing equipment, guides, meals and accommodation will be provided free of charge. All anglers will require a proper salmon angling licence that can be obtained online, through private vendors, at any Service New Brunswick centre, or at the lodge.

Those interested have until July 13 to apply for the online draw. A $10 application fee will be charged. An Outdoors Card number is required to apply which can be obtained through the Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development’s e-licensing system, at private vendors, or online from Service New Brunswick.

The results of the draw will be posted online by July 24.
