 BIG BEAR LAKE: The lake remained mostly ice-covered this past week with no fishing pressure. Some open water the past couple of afternoons, but cold has kept sensible anglers away. For updated fishing information: Big Bear Sporting Goods at 909-866-3222 or visit the store’s Facebook page.

BIG BEAR LAKE: Increasing sheet ice on the lake, but the winter trout bite has been fair to good until 10 a.m. along the north shore with the trout usually not more than 20 or 60 feet off the bank in six to 10 feet of water. Garlic and salmon egg-flavored PowerBait in red, chartreuse and rainbow colors have been the best bet fished on three to four-foot leaders to keep the bait out of the bottom vegetation. Lots of fat pan-sized fish showing and some to two pounds or better. Limits not uncommon for anglers braving the chill. All the boat ramps are now closed.

Trout action best in the mornings from six to 10 a.m., and they are tight to shore in six to 14 feet of water. The best bite is early along the north shore (Red House region) on garlic or salmon egg-flavored PowerBait in red, chartreuse, and rainbow colors fished on three or four-foot leaders. The dam area boulders have also been producing fish on fly-lined nightcrawlers or PowerBait on a slip bobber. Several limits of rainbow trout to two pounds have been reported over the past week. All the boat ramps are now closed. For more fishing information: Big Bear Sporting Goods at 909-866-3222 or visit the store’s Facebook page.
