Big Bear Fishing Report

Big Bear Fishing Report is courtesy of Allen Sharp of Big Bear Marina. Photo at left: The Gillen family brothers of Yucaipa caught their their limits while bait fishing in the afternoon from a pontoon. Allen says that Patrick (13 yrs.), Will (11 yrs.), and Jimmie (8 yrs.) will remember their day on Big Bear Lake for a lifetime.

Trout fishing continued to improve this past week on Big Bear Lake. Surface water temperatures held at 69 degrees in the western third of the lake and oxygen levels are still down, but sufficient.

The trout have adjusted to the summer time conditions and are on the bite once again. Late afternoon is the best time to get your limit of quality trout.

Trollers working from Windy Pt. to the dam at three colors with Needlefish in copper and nickel finishes have seen the best action.

Bait anglers using a slip bobber with dough baits and night crawlers suspended between fifteen and twenty feet along the North Shore in the same areas are also doing well.

The Graham family from San Diego did well on a trip with Fish Big Bear Charter Service. They caught 35 fish while trolling with Curt Dills.

Catfishing remains good in the east end. Fish off the bottom with shrimp, mackerel, or stink baits for singing drags and bent rods.

Don’t forget about the other species available on the lake. Summertime species of crappie, bluegill, redear, small and large mouth bass are out there. Lake records have not yet been established for these species.
