2020 Archived Fishing Reports from Big Bear Lake - October 31, 2020
Now the trollers are needle fishing to the lake death with a few colors in the water and doing okay.
Stocking is needed desperately and if you want something done right you know what they say.
Otherwise we may never catch a fish again. The lake has been beat up with being the only game in town,
everyone was spiking the ball on every inch of the shoreline and dang near moving in like a homeless camp.
With that said the crappie bite has been good, it has been awhile since I have seen this many crappie showing
their face. Mini jigs have been doing the trick near the docks and rocks. Our bass fishing has been great, at least
for this lake it has been. Lots of 3 lb. smallies and a new lake record largemouth has been CPR'ed and still
swimming for your entertainment.
We are open with restrictions , visit our website for current updates and limitations. Don't make your plans
until you understand our procedures.

This time of year, casting a soft swimbait remains one of the most fun and productive ways to catch bass.
With its thin, oversized paddle tail and built-in hook slot, Speed Shad swimbait is both highly effective and

FISHING REPORTS 2019 - for Golden Bear Cottages guests
October 26, 2019 -- I can see the evenings are cooling and the days shortening to drop these temps to real numbers and get these fish active again. BUT... There are still fish to find with the right technique and patience. Controlled depth fishing is the only answer and I'm seeing a bit of life in the early mornings and just at sunset so we have a window of biters. Algae is creeping but not blowing up yet, as soon as I see the water temps and DO dropping but the cooling off will save us just as it gets critical for these hold overs. I am feeling an itch and the only way I can scratch it is with more cow bell or a big fat stocking of scales and slime. Interesting to me how the methodical fisher bad asses have continually caught fish all summer and the towel tossers have not. Let this be a lesson to us-all patience pays off. If all else fails try a nice drift through a few areas with a light weight and a crawler or dough blob and see if the bell rings. I am feeling a good fall of bent rods is upon us and that itch will be scratched. Stand by its going to get weird thanks to my peeps at the Visitor's Bureau providing us the funds to make fun.
Catfish are around and biting, use stink and stuff to find the noses of these kitties and of course they are late night partiers and love the lights out foraging.
Haven't heard of a ton of Bass being caught but they are there on the little structure that we have and a slow bounce may be the ticket.
On a good note, a truck load of bluegill are heading our way this week and those are only caught with the scientific method of hook-worm. It's very complicated but you can Google it. Crappies are cyclic and we are on the down and out rock bottom of the cycle but have no fear they will be back like we have seen them before. Nothing better than spending an evening by the dock watching panfish spanking a surface mini plug.
One thing I know for sure is if you are having a bad day of fishing regardless of the success there is more to the story.
We stocked some kitties this last fall and it seems it worked-they are showing up all over
along with some very hefty bull heads at the scales. Cut mackerel and crawlers have been
doing the trick and as the water warms, it can only get better.
It's very interesting after you drop 12,000 lbs. of rainbow trout into the lake that people start to catch Rainbow trout "weird". This weekend was a perfect example of just that. This is a hit as fishing 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.

Types of FishRainbow trout is the most popular species of fish found in Big Bear Lake, as its depths allow rainbow trout to thrive,
even in the heat of summer. Summertime also brings other species to the lake like largemouth bass, channel catfish,
and a variety of panfish, which make great fishing for younger anglers.
Big Bear Lake is open for 2019 boating season and the lake is up over
ten feet from last year. The Public Launch Ramps are open for all vessels,
motorized and non-motorized. Both ramps are located on the North Shore.
The East Ramp is close to Stanfield cutoff, near the Discovery Center and
the West Ramp is closer to the Big Bear Dam, west of Fawnskin.
