Bear Lake Map
June 2nd,2018Well we didn't catch any lunkers today but we each caught 1 Mack. This was Sean's first Mackinaw. Thanks to Darin for suggesting a spot.
Sucker SpawnWell another Memorial Day weekend has passed and so now the fish are getting ready to go to work by continuing their spawn, like the cutthroats, and our lake trout to come in to feed on all of those small cutthroats that the state planted as well as to feed on those suckers that are in spawning.
May 17th,2018This was the lure of choice that Darin Pugmire told me would be the one...sure enough it did just as he said. With the location, depth, and speed that we where told to run it proved to be exactly what this monster 32" lake trout was after. We ended up catching multiple trout but no cutthroat at all.
May 16th,2018Darin Pugmire of Pugstone Sporting in Garden City UT set me up with a Mag Lip 5.0 green and orange lure and a bottle of Cisco Scent. I trolled at 2mph with the scented lure along the East shore of Bear Lake about 1 mile South of the Idaho border. Within 30 minutes I caught this 24 inch Lake Trout.
May 14th,2018I had a great time during the Bear Lake Cutthroat/ Lake Trout derby. I was able to land this 38" Mac. He gave me an awesome fight. After pictures he was released back in the lake for another day. The cuts were being awful stubborn as the spawn approaches. I also landed a 25, 15, 10, and a few 5 pound Macs during my time at the derby. Thanks Darin Pugmire for putting this on.
May 7th,2018Dang! Should have signed up for the fishing contest. Caught this Saturday along with a few smaller macks. fished just north of the Marina in fifty feet of water. Most were caught is 15 to 20 feet of water.
Lake Trout UpdateLakers are Hungry! After a morning of fighting rough water we were pulling up gear on our way back to the marina and picked up this 31" 13.8 lb Laker in about 40 feet of water, trolling 15 ft lure depth. My little girl caught the biggest of the year so far. This fish put up a good fight for over 10 mins.
April 29th,2018Cutts are becoming active, we picked up this 4 LB native this morning 4-29 Trolling in 30 Feet of water, north of the marina, lure depth 15 FT.
April 28th,20184-28-18 fishing is ok, here is a 10 lb laker. Caught in 35 feet of water trolling.
Sculpin spawning fishing reportFished east side 4/18. Bear lake sculpin are spawning, fish are in close to shore in morning. Caught 20 lb Mac on fly rod in 20 ft water trolling cone head sculpin imitation. High water this year seems to have the sculpin more spread out compared to last year. Fishing was slow compared to last 2 years at this same time. Others fishing this area I talked with were fishless.
