Bear Lake The majority of the lake is ice free and the water temperature is 33.1°F. First Point boat ramp is closed; the dock has been removed and the ice is beginning to buildup. The State Marina, Rainbow Cove and Cisco Beach launch ramps are open. The park roads and launch ramps have been plowed and the de-icers have been turned on in the marina channel. Anglers have been catching 12- to 20-inch cutthroat trout on swim baits and 3/4- or 7/8-ounce silver or blue spoons in about 10 to 12 feet of water. Whitefish are biting on small brightly colored jig heads, marabou lures and green or white curly tail jigs. Anglers report good fishing from sunrise until noon near the marina, and slower fishing in the afternoon and evening.
