What a terrific start to fishing season 2012 on beautiful Big Bear Lake. Lucky Bear spent six hours out on the lake saturday and had over two dozen hard fighting trout on the lines. The first trip started off at 7am with a greeting from two amazing eagles soaring over Windy Point! We trolled night crawlers and needlefish or dick nites in orange colors. The rainbow trout were biting between 15-20 feet near the observatory. Mid day things stayed very similar as far as location, depths and lures except the bite did pick up and we had a few more fish on the lines. All of the trout kept were nice size and quality pink meat. Many fish stripped the lines and put on a show- it was a exciting and fun day of fishing. That big, bright, full moon didn't stop the trout from biting! Fishing is better than ever on Big Bear Lake and it's a perfect time to come up to the mountains where the skies are clear and blue. Free fishing days in California are July 7th and September 8th this year so why not plan a trip up to Big Bear to go fishing!
