     BIG BEAR LAKE: The trout bite has been slow with only a few fish showing in the heat and thunderstorms this past. Trollers working Trout Alley along the south shore with two to three colors of leadcore dragging Needlefish, Thomas Bouyants, KastMasters, Rapalas, or flashers and nightcrawlers were getting a few rainbows. The bass bite has been fair on drop-shot plastics or shallow-diving cranks baits. More and more crappie and bluegill are showing in the coves, mostly on meal worms or small crappie jigs fished under a bobber. The catfish and bullhead bites are also finally starting to take off, especially in the evenings. All the public launch ramps and the five private marinas are open.

     BIG BEAR LAKE: Very consistent trout action with a pretty good bite for the trollers working Trout Alley along the south shore with two to three colors of leadcore and the usual array of Needlefish, Thomas Bouyants, Kastmaters, Rapala-like lures, or flashers and nightcrawlers. Shore angling is a little tougher with the best bite early in the day on floating baits, inflated nightcrawlers, or small jigs. The bass are fair to good on drop-shot plastics or shallow-diving crankbaits. Crappie and bluegill are starting to show in most of the coves and bays on meal worms or small jigs fished under a bobber. All the public launch ramps and the five private marinas are open.
