FISHING REPORT SEPTEMBER 15 - for Golden Bear Cottages guests

The cry for the reel fishing report has been heard. The saying "no news is good news" doesn't 
always hold true since there has been nothing good to report for months. It has been a rough start to our spring fishing, however we are seeing a bit of light at the end of the tunnel as for now.

It's very interesting after you drop 12k lbs. of rainbow trout into the lake that people start to catch Rainbow trout "weird". This weekend was a perfect example of just that. The 50K was a hit as folks from California and beyond came to try their luck on slaying the power ball fish. I hear that fishing was good and most caught some, and a few caught a lot, and scattered in were a few real monsters that hit the scales.  

The DFW has been showing us a touch of love and dropping a load of rainbows here and there which adds to filling up every nook and cranny with Pescado. 

The water is warming and the lake is beginning to stratify and be fickle which will help suppress the algae bloom that seems to be hampering our visibility among other things.
Currently sinking Rapalas and leaded line used to sink a colorful needle fish are producing. 

Drifting dough bait is always a great go-to if nothing else seems to be enticing a bite.  We are not far away from the magical suspended fish slip bobbing extravaganza AKA "controlled depth fishing" which happens every summer when the lake layers (stratifies).  The lake is warming fast and this will change everything. Lakes are like snowflakes and this one is melting fast.
Spring bass fishing has been phenomenal; we are seeing excellent size and numbers. 

Crank baits and plastics are smoking them; super-hot bait is the smoke colored gitzit tube bates.

We are seeing a few catfish showing up along with a hand full of bullheads. Cut mackerel is 
also a go-to along with the magic of anything that smells like feet.
The moment you all have been waiting for, the carp are up and everywhere. The spawn just keeps on going like an energizer bunny. Lots of folks are taking advantage of the early spawn and sharpening their skills for the greatest tournament on earth. The 14th annual Carp Round-up will be taking off without a hitch on the 17th and 18th of June. We are only taking the first 10,000 entrants so snooze you lose. Raffle is out of control this year everyone wins.

Big Bear Lake Fishing Report - SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 

This may be the easiest report I have ever put together because the fishing is that good and it really doesn't matter what I say, YOU WILL CATCH FISH. Currently Rapala and Needlefish are working well on the troll. The folks using the drift method have been very successful as well. Dough bait from the shoreline is always a good go-to this time of the year. The Lake is packaged full of beautiful trout right now and we are seeing some of the best fishing in a decade. The water is mixed so there is no honey hole at the present time however the fish are moving to the west as the water warms. So get out and try your luck and catch something for the grill. Bass fishing is good along the structure; we have seen a lot of fish in the three pound range. The carp have not shown their face as of yet but we hope to see sprinklings of uglys soon as the granddaddy tournament of them all is rapidly approaching.

FISHING TIP OF THE WEEK The water clarity is pretty good this time of year so use the lightest line you can, 4lb or less works for most applications.

Archived Fishing Report for Golden Bear Cottages guests -------


We planted over a million fish last fall and trout fishing has already been very good with DFW adding a few nice truckloads of catchables lately. We are seeing quite a few limits of respectable fish hitting the scales. The fish are scattered all over the massive body of water and working the surface when the sun is high in the sky with a big pile of metal flashy stuff and a crawler on your line always seems to work this time of the year. For shore fishing folks, the magical dough bait on a light lined leader with a sliding sinker will produce as always. I like the light colors of dough bait like white and the patriotic American flag; red, white, and blue as a go-to color when the water is cold. Besides, if you don't catch a fish it makes you feel like you are living the American dream.

P.S., Catfish and bass are good summer fishing at Big Bear Lake


Fishing Report for Golden Bear Cottages guests -- Oct. 31, 2016
This past week we covered the entire west end and majority of the rainbow trout were hitting along the north shore from Windy Point to the dam.  Our depths were from the surface to 20 feet.  All times of day have been good fishing and late afternoon tends to pick up particularly near dusk.  Leaded lines at 3 to 4 colors and down riggers running from 3 to 6 feet and 13 to 15 feet most times.  Flicker Shads on the surface, Needlefish, Dick Nites, Little Warriors and PK Lures proto type flies and flutter fish were the hottest lures of the week on leaded lines and night crawlers or various spoons on down riggers.  The weather has been great with the exception of a few showers and a bit of lighting but as quick as it arrived it cleared out and fishing remained strong.  In a three hour trip we caught 6-24 fish this past week so timing has been key to the fish count!  Mornings are a bit hit and miss, mid day is fine and afternoon to dusk has been best.
