FISHING REPORTS JUNE 2, 2018 - for Golden Bear Cottages guests


June 28, 2018 -- The bass fishing is picking up around the docks and rocks and the bass are continuing to grow up to be big boys. Bouncing jigs near structure and morning and late evening top water has been productive. Someone spread the rumor that we didn't have small mouth bass in Big Bear Lake. Well they are wrong as a football glove but no need to spread the truth - - that just leaves more for us!

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.

Lake is still low but the catching is high.


FEMALE ANGLERS MAKING WAVES

We're calling all female anglers to the water; moms, daughters, wavemakers, and adventure-seekers, because we don't think anyone should be left out of fishing and boating.




  

NATIONAL FISHING & BOATING WEEK JUNE 2-10

Celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week on the water! Participate in one of the fishing and boating events in your state. Check out the upcoming free fishing days in your state.

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.

Types of Fish

Rainbow 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 2018 boating season and the lake is up over
five 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.  
Our six marinas have everything you need to have a great time on the lake.
Get your fishing license, fishing gear, bait and more. Rent a pontoon boat for
family fun or try a fishing boat for adventure exploring the fishing coves in
Big Bear Lake.




5 BASS FISHING TRICKS TO USE NOW  
   Autumn bass fishing can put your catching skills to the test, but that's also part of the allure. Use these bass fishing tricks to catch more fish. 

     GO EARLY OR GO LATE

If you're wondering when to fish for bass during the Spring, the key is to get out on the water before sunrise or at sunset. So if you can't go early, plan to fish around dusk. The best times to fish for bass will be during the cooler periods of the day. This is one of the most important fundamentals of lake bass fishing for beginners.

Fishing reports for Big Bear Lake -- archived from 2017 

AUGUST - This is 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. Get your registration in soon as we have blown this baby up this year to be the best ever.

 

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.


Storm report and weather advisories
August 30, 2017  FISHING SHOULD BE GOOD IN BIG BEAR LAKE


Autumn has arrived in Big Bear.  Cooler weather this month has kept 

water temperature around 67. Fish are moving and on the move looking for food.  

The trout are more spread out  throughout the lake now.  

When the water is in the low 60s is it prime time to go trout fishing.

Fishing Reports for Golden Bear Cottages guests -------

FIRST FISHING TIP OF
THE YEAR 2017


We planted over a million fish last fall and trout fishing has already been very good with Department of Fish and Wildlife adding a few nice truckloads of good size Trout and Bass 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 are sleeping and bass are  hibernating

2016 Final Fishing Report for Golden Bear Cottages guests -- NOVEMBER 7, 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.
