Big Bear Fishing Report

Big Bear Fishing Report by Alan Sharp

Oxygen levels have plummeted on the west end of the lake. At the dam oxygen levels are only good in the top 13 feet of the water column and only the top 26 feet at Papoose Bay.

In contrast oxygen levels are high from the west ramp all the way to Juniper Point–from top to bottom.

This is the exact opposite of the normal pattern throughout the years, and a very good indicator of how the lake is changing.

Trollers working Trout Triangle are scoring nice holdovers at 2 to 2.5 colors of leadcore with pearl and nickel back spoons.

Bait anglers using PowerBait or nightcrawlers suspended from a slip bobber are also getting a few, drift fishing from a boat is better than from the shore right now.

Water temperatures continue to drop with the top and bottom showing 64 to 63 degrees across the lake.

It’s all about TroutFest this coming weekend (10/3 & 10/4) as 1000 anglers will ply the waters of Big Bear Lake in search of tagged fish worth thousands of dollars in cash and prizes.

Over 10,000 lbs of fish will be stocked with a good mix of fish from 1.5 lbs. To 10 lbs.
