The May Trout Classic was held this past weekend and it was won by Jeff Frease, Long Beach, with a 6.34-pound rainbow. Since the big plants for the tournament, there has been a steady string of big rainbows to seven pounds and better. William Schmid, Big Bear, had a 7.1-pounder, while Mel Freese, also Big Bear, had a 5.75-pounder. Overall, fair to good action on the rainbows. Trolling limits have been pretty common on Needlefish in Trout Alley between Gilner Point, the Rock Wall, and the Zebra Room. Further west the bite is good from the buoy line to Gray’s Landing. Shore angling is best along the north shore from the dam and at the old Gray’s Landing area. Most of the rainbows are showing on PowerBait in yellow or green with garlic. A few bass are showing on plastics and reaction baits. For updated fishing information: Big Bear Sporting Goods at 909-866-3222 or visit the store’s Facebook page.

Breezy and cool much of the past week. Those fishing are are seeing fair to good action on the rainbows. Trolling limits have been pretty common with fish to three pounds on Needlefish in Trout Alley between Gilner Point, the Rock Wall, and the Zebra Room. Further west the bite is good from the buoy line to Gray’s Landing. Shore angling is best along the north shore from the dam and at the old Gray’s Landing area. Most of the rainbows are showing on PowerBait in yellow or green with garlic. Fred and Susan Sanchez, Big Bear Lake, had eight rainbows weighing 15 pound total fly-lining nightcrawlers near the dam. The couple has been hammering them every week. A few bass starting to show, but other species are very slow.
