Bear Lake Map

Well 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 Spawn
Darin - 05/28/18

Well 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.

Fishing will continue to be really good, so don't let the time go by before you get up here to fish. We will continue to see aggressive action out of the trout until we start seeing our water temps jump up into the mid 60's. The chance to come up and enjoy the lake before it get overcrowded with those boating for recreation pulling tubes and skiing etc is about 2 weeks out so mark it on your calendar to get up here asap.

Locations to fish will be from the state marina north passed Swan Creek, (make sure you stay behind the buoys) and then continue down to Fish Have Creek as well. (Also make sure you stay 300 yards away from the inlet). If you go to the other side of the lake an launch off of 1st Point I would be fishing north passed 2nd Point and onto the Scout Camp. Next launch off of Rainbow Cove and fish from there south to South Eden. All of these areas will be good. The fishing down by the inlet of Mud Lake into Bear Lake would also be a spot to try. This can be done by fishing from shore or most preferably by pontoon. We could also help any of you anglers that want to fish off of a pontoon around Cisco Beach as well as the Points. We do rent these out and you can pick them up for $50 a day.

The pattern colors to use will still be your Gold/Black, Chartreuse/Silver/Blue/Pink, Rainbow, Silver/Green, Silver/Blue...these will continue to work throughout these next couple of weeks before we start going out into those deeper waters.

We now have our online store available so if you can't make it to use we will ship it to you for FREE! We are hear to try and make things work out for each of you!


Don't forget that jigging is still a go too. I would be jigging from 6am-9am and then start your trolling technique. Don't forget your Cisco Scent will improve your odds of fish caught, whether that is jigging or trolling you would want to place them on all lures used for this or any other body of water that you are fishing.

This 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.

Until next time...

Darin 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.

Cutthroat/ Lake Trout Derby - 05/14/18

I 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.

Lake Trout Update
Josh Borg - 04/29/18

Lakers 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.

Sculpin spawning fishing report
Dave Hawkins - 04/25/18

Fished 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.
