Water Temperature  

Conditions : Bear Lake: Bear Lake surface water temperature is in the low 50s. The water level is basically at full capacity and boat launching is possible at all ramps on the Utah and Idaho sides of the lake. This includes the Bear Lake State Park marina, First Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps in Utah as well as the East Shore State Park and North Beach in Idaho.

Fishing is fair to good using both trolling and jigging methods. Good areas to fish include off of North Eden and Rainbow Cove. People who are jigging have also done well off of the Points and the edge of the Rockpile. If you prefer to jig, use tube jigs or swim baits in various colors in half to one-ounce sizes and three to six inches long. You can tip your lure with cisco/sucker/carp meat for better luck. If you are trolling, use Flatfish in U-20 or similar sizes or minnow type lures in #9 to 13 sizes. Try targeting 60 to 80 feet of water, but you might want to try shallower or deeper depending on the day.

About: - You expect a lake to be blue, but turquoise? That’s the color of Bear Lake, the 20-mile-long body of water that straddles the Idaho-Utah border.

Ask park rangers about nearby Minnetonka Cave, operated by the US Forest Service.
