UDWR Bear Lake Fishing Report:

UDWR Bear Lake Fishing Report:

There is about 24" of snow on the ground at Bear Lake and the lake is open water. There is also a fair amount of floating ice on the lake, so be careful when boating. Deicers are being used to keep the marina open and the ramps have been plowed, but are slippery. You can launch at First Point and the Rainbow Cove boat ramp on the east side but Cisco Beach ramp is not accessible due to deep snow. There are no courtesy docks at any of the east side ramps. If you are launching a larger boat at Rainbow Cove, be careful about not backing in your trailer so far that it will go off the end of the concrete. There is a large drop off at the end of the ramp and this could ruin a trailer axle.



The Bonneville Cisco run has not begun yet. There were no Cisco running off the Cisco Beach or State Park marina dikes as of this morning. Anglers are just beginning to snag a few Cisco off the rockpile, but only catching one or two fish. This should only improve in the coming two weeks. However, fishing for Cutthroat Trout and Lake Trout is very good at this time. Anglers are mainly jigging off the rockpile area in water from 38-70’ deep. Best lures have been tube jigs tipped with cisco or sucker meat. Fishing for Whitefish has been good for anglers using smaller vertical jigging spoons such as Kastmasters and Swedish Pimples. You can also try running a 6-8" dropper line below the spoons with an ice fly for the whitefish. Anglers are also catching a few trout casting off shore at Cisco Beach. Try larger spoons or large spinners (#5 or #6) when casting or use streamers/leaches on fly rods.



Please remember, all Cutthroat Trout that are caught and don't have a healed fin clip must be released. Large Lake Trout are not very good eating and take a long time to reach large sizes, and while they are legal to keep, many anglers are encouraging other anglers to release them.



The UDWR will update the Bear Lake office answering machine with lake conditions, status of the Cisco run, and other fishing opportunities every other day until the end of the Cisco run, but please call after 5pm in order to keep the line open during business hours (7am - 5pm). The number is 435-946-8501. The annual "Cisco Disco" , Polar Plunge, and Bear Lake Winterfest will be held on Saturday, January 28th. More info is available at: https://bearlakemonsterwinterfest.com/



Garden City Community Fishery Pond

The pond is now frozen and ice thickness is 10"with about two feet of snow on top. Anglers need to be extremely cautious since there are two deicers on the pond which makes the ice weak on those areas. They are clearly marked with black plastic floats but may be buried under the snow. The best luck is coming on very small jigs (1/32 oz or smaller) ice flies in green or orange colors. Tip your lure with a Gulp maggot or small waxworm for best results.



Laketown Reservoir

Laketown Reservoir is also frozen and the ice is at least 10" thick at this time. Vehicle access now blocked due to the snow depth, but you can still access the reservoir by snowmobile, snowshoe, or skis. Fishing has been good for rainbow and a few cutthroat trout using ice flies tipped with a meal worm or nightcrawler.

Bear Lake Ice Up
Darin - 01/17/17

Looks like with the super cold spell we are receiving, our lake is trying to cap over with some ice forming over the Rockpile as well as the other side of the lake as well. The last places that will have to freeze up will be off of North and South Eden canyons. The reason for this is because of the wind that comes out of those canyons which keeps the lake from capping completely over. I can't see the entire lake and I am not driving around the 54 miles of lake to look today but I can say that it looks like the RockPile area is not accessible or at least without having to chip your way out to get there.

Use caution - sunny today - some thin amounts of fog - 5 degrees - beautiful day!

Bonneville Cisco Run
Darin - 01/17/17

I have been out of town on some buying shows so I didn't update this because I didn't have the ability to cross check all of my information. I didn't see anyone else try to post on my site as well but please start doing that so we can all be caught up to speed.

The cisco finally showed up via boat off of the Rockpile. Anglers reported catching cisco as well as whitefish, cutthroat, and lake trout. Depths fort the cisco will range from 50-40' in depth as well as for the whitefish are that coming in to feed off of the eggs as well as off of the cisco. The trout will also be caught in those depths but going out deeper will be a better choice for those. Depths should be from 62-83'. Lures of choice will be kastmasters in 3/4oz and 1/2oz. Several color patterns are recommended so don't go out short handed. As for the trout you could push over to 5"/6"/7" tube jigs using my double trouble jig heads. Slow vertical jigging as well as rapid sometimes is needed. If you have a Utah fishing license you can fish with two poles so make sure you do that when after the bigger trout. Leave your jig about 4" off of the bottom for best success.

Color patterns will be what you mimic the cisco with. Silver, white, gold, black, chartreuse, red, and copper are what I would recommend.

The cisco haven't started to show to the shoreline yet. Plan on this to happen by next weekend but I doubt it will be the peak time. I will update you all as soon as I hear that they have started to show up from shore.

Remember that the cisco net has to be 18" or smaller diameter. I have built my custom cisco nets again which come in 12' and 8'. These nets have 3 holes allowing you to use them in several lengths. They are an octagon handled net so you won't have to replace them each year like you do with all of those other nets. Once you purchase one of these you will be set for years to come. Costs are $64.99 - $79.99

Good luck to all of you that are going out this week. The fog is heavy in the early morning hours so use caution getting back and forth from your destination. Cisco Beach is also a very good location and the boat ramps are able to be used with a little ice forming along all the edges so when you come via boat I would recommend bringing a pic of some sort to help you in your efforts.

The cisco should start around January 20th - January 31st from shore. From boat we should see them from January 15th-February 4th.

Keep in touch and feel free to text me anytime. 435-757-9430

UDWR Bear Lake Fishing Report:
Scott Tolentino - 01/02/17

There is about 10" of snow on the ground at Bear Lake and all ramps are available for launching boats. Deicers are being used to keep the marina open. You can launch at First Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps, however the State Park has pulled the courtesy docks at all locations except the State Park marina. If you are launching in these east side locations come prepared to launch without a dock. The water level at Rainbow Cove is becoming low, so if you are launching a larger boat, be careful about not backing in your trailer so far that it will go off the end of the concrete ramp. There is a large drop off at the end of the ramp and could ruin a trailer axle. There are also a fair amount of floating ice on the lake, so be careful when boating. Fishing for Lake Trout and Cutthroat Trout has been very good for anglers both jigging and trolling off the rockpile area. If jigging use tube jigs tipped with cisco or sucker meat. If trolling with downriggers in these same locations, use Rapalas or minnow type lures including spoons. Try off the rockpile near Ideal Beach, the rockpiles just north of the Utah State Park marina, and off South Eden/Cisco Beach in water depths of 35-70’ of water. Anglers are also catching a few fish casting off shore at Cisco Beach and off the State Park marina dikes. Try larger spoons or large spinners (#5 or #6) at this time of year.

Please remember, all Cutthroat Trout that are caught and don't have a healed fin clip must be released. Large Lake Trout are not very good eating and take a long time to reach large sizes, and while they are legal to keep, many anglers are encouraging other anglers to release them.

Garden City Community Fishery Pond
The pond is now frozen and ice thickness is 6-7". We urge anglers to be extremely cautious since there are two deicers on the pond which makes the ice weak on those areas. They are clearly marked with black plastic floats. The best luck is coming on very small jigs (1/32 oz or smaller) ice flies in green or orange colors. Tip your lure with a Gulp maggot or small wax-worm for best results.

Laketown Reservoir
Laketown Reservoir is also frozen and the ice is 8-10" thick at this time. Access is becoming difficult with increasing snow depths, but as of January 2nd , you can still access the reservoir in a 4 wheel drive. One the road is snowed-in you can only access this water with a snowmobile or on skis. Fishing has been good for rainbow and a few cutthroat trout using ice flies tipped with a meal worm or night crawler.

Fly Fishing Big Blue!
Carl Lively - 12/29/16

A great time on Big Blue with my flyrod.

Christmas Eve
Marvin spidle - 12/24/16

Braved the cold temps to find some pretty good fishing on the 23rd. Started off with a 16 pound laker. Tons of fun to jig up a fish like that. Things stayed slow for us through the morning but heated up 1:30. Pretty steady bite until we left around 4:30. Had flat water and the whole lake to ourselves during the afternoon. Standard jigs tipped with Cisco in 65 feet of water. Not everyday you boat 25 fish between the two of us!!

Launching is available at the Utah State Park marina, First Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps, however the State Park has pulled the courtesy docks at all locations except the State Park marina. If you are launching in these east side locations come prepared to launch without a dock. The water level at Rainbow Cove is becoming low, so if you are launching a larger boat, be careful about not backing in your trailer so far that it will go off the end of the concrete ramp. There is a large drop off at the end of the ramp and could ruin a trailer axle. The Bonneville Whitefish spawning run is peaking and should continue through the coming weekend into next week. Fish are being taken in good numbers with some limits fairly common. The best luck for Whitefish has been off the State Park Marina and along Cisco Beach in water from about 7-14’ deep. Use 1/8 or 1/16 ounce jigs tipped with a small piece of worm and fished along the bottom. You can catch Whitefish from shore in both of these locations as well, but make sure to bring some waders since it helps to get into the water a little ways before casting for them. .

Fishing for Lake Trout and Cutthroat Trout has been very good for anglers jigging with tube jigs tipped with cisco or sucker meat. Try off the rockpile near Ideal Beach, the rockpiles just north of the Utah State Park marina, and off South Eden/Cisco Beach in water depths of 20-55’. Anglers are also doing fairly well trolling with downriggers in these same locations using both Rapalas and Flatfish. Anglers casting off Cisco Beach and the State Park marina can catch both Lake Trout and Cutthroat Trout using spoons or large spinners at this time of year.

Please remember, all Cutthroat Trout that are caught and don’t have a healed fin clip must be released. Large Lake Trout are not very good eating and take a long time to reach large sizes, and while they are legal to keep, many anglers are encouraging other anglers to release them.

Garden City Community Fishery Pond
The pond is now frozen, but we urge anglers to be extremely cautious on the newly formed ice. Fishing should be good for rainbow trout using small spoons or ice flies. Using a small piece of worm or meal worm on your lure can help too.

Laketown Reservoir
Laketown Reservoir is also frozen and the ice is 2-4” thick at this time with about 3” of snow on top of it. As of December 14th, you can still access the reservoir in a 4 wheel drive, but if we get more snow access may only be possible with a snowmobile or on skiis. Fishing should be good for both rainbow and cutthroat trout using ice flies tipped with a meal worm or nightcrawler.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN BONE FISHING
Darin - 12/13/16

Well it looks like the whitefish ended up being a little harder to catch these past 2 days. A lot of this is because of the full moon as well as the low pressure that came stomping in. The whitefish run isn't over but we are going into the last weekend of having good numbers caught. Don't miss out and have to wait another 350 days for them to start coming back into the shoreline for some perfect fishing on Bear Lake.

The whitefish derby seems to have lost a lot of speed. I used more resources than any other time to get good numbers of participants but we are only seeing about 6 total fisherman that have paid and entered the contest. In all of the previous derbies that we have done we haven't brought as many sponsored items onto the court. Perhaps the timing of the derby as well as the time of year has made it difficult for everyone to find time for it. If this is the reason you are unable to do this derby please let me know and I will move it to the first of December next year even when the whitefish are not in a full spawn situation.

OK - I haven't heard a lot of reports about cutthroat trout and lake trout being caught. I do know several that have done really well on the cutthroat during this whitefish run buy just simply jigging small mini jigs on 1/16 and 1/8oz tube jigs. The main thing is if you want more whitefish to be caught make sure you stay down low on the bottom and don't do those big vertical jigs that you use for trout. Slow them down and do more of a bounce just off the bottom and remember it is all in the feel! If you have too big of a rod you won't catch as many fish because you won't be able to feel those small little bites. When the bites total go away that is because you have a trout in the mix and then start to do those bigger vertical jigs. If you tip them with meal worms and/or night crawlers you will be happy. I have better success with meal worms but to each their own.

Locations for best success will be 2nd Point, Cisco Beach, and the State Marina. Make sure that your depths are from 8-16' depths. If you are not having success make sure to move in or out even if it is just slightly.

Pass the word around friends about the derby. Pass it around that if you would like to participate but are unable to do so that you please let me know reasons why so I can plan for that during the next derby.

Thanks for all of your posts on this site as well as those posts you send to me via text and social media.

Good luck to all and to all a good night!

UDWR Bear Lake Fishing Report
Scott Tolentino - 12/01/16

Launching is available at the Utah State Park marina, First Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps. The water level at Rainbow Cove is becoming low, so if you are launching a larger boat, be careful about not backing in your trailer so far that it will go off the end of the concrete ramp. There is a large drop off at the end of the ramp and could ruin a trailer axle. The Bonneville Whitefish spawning run has finally started. Fish are just beginning to be taken in good numbers and the fishing should continue to improve during the next week and last for about 2 weeks or so. Water levels are lower this year so you may need to try different spots to find the fish, but the best luck should be off Cisco Beach where there is plenty of rocky shoreline habitat that these fish prefer. Use 1/8 or 1/16 ounce jigs tipped with a small piece of worm and fished along the bottom. Try fishing close to shore in water 5'-15' deep. The nice part is you can catch these fish from shore as well as boats. Anglers are also picking up some whitefish fishing off the Utah State Park marina.

Fishing for Lake Trout and Cutthroat Trout has been very good for anglers jigging with tube jigs tipped with cisco or sucker meat. Try off the rockpile near Ideal Beach, the rockpiles just north of the Utah State Park marina, and off South Eden/Cisco Beach in water depths of 30-65'. Anglers are also doing fairly well trolling with downriggers in these same locations using both Rapalas and Flatfish. Anglers casting off Cisco Beach and the State Park marina can catch lakers and Cutthroat Trout using spoons or large spinners at this time of year.

Please remember, all Cutthroat Trout that are caught and don't have a healed fin clip must be released. Large Lake Trout are not very good eating and take a long time to reach large sizes, and while they are legal to keep, many anglers are encouraging other anglers to release them.



Garden City Community Fishery Pond

Fishing for Rainbow Trout continues to be good. The water is colder so, you fishing with larger nymphs or wooly buggers. Casting small spinners with gold blades in size #0 or #1 in dark colors are also working well. Bait anglers are also catching a few fish using worms under a bobber. The pond is full.



Laketown Reservoir

Laketown Reservoir anglers are also reporting good fishing for both Rainbow Trout and a few Cutthroat Trout. Weeds have died back and access for fishing is good. Brown or green wooly buggers and nymphs have been working the best, but casting with small spinners tipped with a worm or meal worm can work well too. A 4 wheel drive is recommended to access this reservoir since the road is rough and snowy.
