     BIG BEAR LAKE: Fair trout action this past week. Best bite for trollers has been on Needlefish or nightcrawlers behind a wedding ring setup fished early in the morning in Trout alley on the south shoreline. The shoreline bite has been best from Windy Point to the dam on the north shore with PowerBait in cheese, salmon egg, and garlic the best. Anglers are reminded that all tributaries to the lake are closed to fishing March 1 through May 31 to protect the spawning rainbow trout. Bass action improves with each warm day as the fish move up shallow for the spawn. Other species are still very slow. One public launch ramps and the five private marinas are now open. The Big Bear Municipal Water District (BBMWD) Duane Boyer West Launch Ramp will open in early May.

BIG BEAR LAKE: Fair to good trout action over the past week with the best bite at the dam, throughout the west end of the lake, and along the north shore. Top action has continued to be on PowerBait, Gulp!, and inflated nightcrawlers fished with a two- to three-foot leader and small treble hook. The best bite has been in the mornings and evenings. Anglers are reminded that all tributaries to the lake are closed to fishing March 1 through May 31 to protect the spawning rainbow trout. The bass bite has started to take off as the fish move shallow for the spawn. Phil Bougie, San Bernardino, landed and released a 6-10 bass, while Tyler Voss, Big Bear, did the same thing with a four-pounder. Other species are still very slow. The Big Bear Municipal Water District (BBMWD) opened The Carol Morrison East Launch Ramp for the 2015 season on April 1, and all five private Big Bear Lake marinas are now open. On May 8, the Duane Boyer West Launch Ramp will open. The BBMWD also planted approximately one million fingerling rainbows on April 1. These fish are expected to be from six to 12 inches long within three months. For more fishing information: Big Bear Sporting Goods at 909-866-3222 or visit the store’s Facebook page.
