Fishing Report
April 24, 2014
Trout fishing was up and down this past week, but the bite has been picking up since the weather has calmed down. The best action has been when a breeze has rippled the water, with most of the fish from one to two pounds. For trollers working four colors of leadcore with a variety of lures in different colors has been the ticket in the trout triangle. Needlefish, Thomas Buoyants, and Dick Nite spoons are still the best. Shore anglers are having their best luck all along the north shore on inflated nightcrawlers and dough baits. The bass action has been steadily improving, and Scott Eberhard, Big Bear City, reported a 6.35-pound lake-record largemouth he caught April 6. The fish breaks the previous 5.9-pound record caught in 2008. The record bass was released. The marinas and public boat launches are all open, and the Jim Hall Memorial Trout Classic will be held May 17-18 (info by calling 909-585-4007).

Fishing is HOT in the blue jewel we call Big Bear Lake! The trout action remains consistent for shoreline anglers using Garlic and Salmon Egg flavored Power Baits in various colors. A secret "Local Favorite" is using a small piece of night-crawler with Garlic Yellow power bait on the same #16 treble hook on a 2'-3' fluorocarbon leader. This technique has been particularly successful at Juniper Point but can be used at a multitude of shoreline fishing holes. Troller's are doing well in Trout Alley, the Observatory and the buoy line near the Dam using a night crawler on a wedding ring worm harness. Needlefish, used with or without flashers, in Copper, Pearl Bikini, and Copper Chicken Wing have been making angler's rods "Go Bend-O". Water temps are 54-58 degrees at the surface west to east and oxygen levels are 8ppm lake wide down to 45 feet.
