Bear Lake Fishing

Bear Lake is Utah’s second-largest natural freshwater lake, and offers correspondingly large lake trout (plus-20 pounds) and cutthroat trout (plus-10 pounds). Both of these species can be found near Bear Lake Marina, Rainbow Cove, and Cisco Beach, and tend to strike on large spoons and rappels. Some anglers pinpoint fish with sonar and then use jigging to land them; and others like to tip their lures and jigs. Fishing from boats is most popular on Bear Lake, but good shore fishing can be found at Cisco Beach on the east shore of the lake and at the Bear Lake State Park Marina. Bear Lake is also home to the Bonneville Whitefish and Cisco: two unique species that can’t be found anywhere else.
