Big Bear Fishing Report by Alan Sharp of Big Bear Marina

Trout fishing improved this past week, as the fish settled into their new territory. Anglers that shore fished from Windy Pt. to the dam, as well as, anglers drift fishing the same area landed quality fish with some limits reported. A slip bobber setup is a must. The fish are holding in ten to twenty five feet of water and will hit doughbaits and night crawlers fished in that zone. Trollers working the same area, at two to two and a half colors also got in on the action. The top producing lures off the week were Helgy’s, Thomas Buoyants and the all-time number one Big Bear Lake lure the red-dot frog Needlefish.

Big Catfish continued to show all along the east end. Nitro Biscuits, shrimp and mackerel fished off the bottom resulted in catches of fifteen to twenty pound whiskerfish.

If you are “trouted-out” at this time, try going after the Summertime species of panfish, bass and catfish. Lake Records have not been established for Crappie, Bluegill, or Small and Largemouth Bass. Jigs, spinners, rattle cranks, plastics or a good old night crawler will work on these fish, and you too could have a Lake Record.
