Big Bear Fishing Report by Alan Sharp

Water temperatures dropped several degrees as the cold front passed through this week. The west end is now 67 degrees and the East is at 69 degrees.

Oxygen levels have plummeted from top to bottom at the dam all the way to Papoose Bay. At the West Ramp 5 parts per million (minimal level for trout) is exactly at 5.0 from the surface down to 33 feet. Oxygen levels remain over 5.0 east to the observatory. Unless the oxygen levels increase in the West the fish will be found from the West ramp to the observatory.

Late afternoon until dark has been the best time to catch trout. Trolling with leadcore line or bait fishing with a slip bobber is a must now! Trollers going down to four colors in the afternoon then up to one and a half at dusk have done well with Rapalas and Needlefish, while bait anglers have found their share on PowerBait and nightcrawlers.

Smallmouth Bass are being caught on minijigs and spinners along the Observatory jetty and similar rock jetties around the lake. Catfish continue to hit mackerel and Gulp Dough on the sandy bottom near Eagle Pt.
