Conditions : Bear Lake Shore anglers report successful fishing using white curly tails, large spoons from the rocks and 3.5- to 5-inch white swimbaits with a 1/4-ounce jig head.

Last week's report - The water level has dropped about 3.5 feet this year, but you can still launch a boat in Utah at the State Park marina, 1st Point, Cisco Beach and the Rainbow Cove boat ramps. Courtesy docks are in the water at all locations. In Idaho, you can launch at the North Beach ramp.

The road on the east side of the lake in Utah is being repaved. It's now completely paved from Laketown to the Idaho State line. This will provide much easier access on the east side of Bear Lake to the boat ramps and fishing areas along the shore.

Fishing is good for cutthroat and lake trout. Anglers are catching fish by trolling with downriggers and minnow-type lures off Cisco Beach, Rainbow Cove and North Eden. Try trolling very shallow water in the rocky shoreline areas. Anglers are catching fish at 10 feet out of 60 foot deep water. Try fishing shallow depths in the mornings and move out deeper as the sun comes up. Some anglers are also catching cutthroat and lake trout by trolling and jigging off the Gus Rich Point/Rockpile area. If you are jigging for trout, use tube jigs or swim baits in various colors in 1/2- to one ounce sizes, and three to six inches long tipped with cisco, sucker meat or Gulp minnows. White, green and chartreuse are reliable colors. Shore fishing is fair to good for cutthroat and lake trout casting large spinners and spoons off the Utah State Park marina and off the Cisco Beach.

The Bonneville whitefish should begin their spawning run the week after Thanksgiving. The run will continue through the first two weeks of December. There have been no reports of anyone catching whitefish yet, but we will continue to monitor and report on the run once it gets going.

The trout limit is two fish. You may keep cutthroat trout that have a fin clip, but you must immediately release any cutthroat trout that have all fins intact. Lake trout take a long time to reach large sizes. They are legal to keep, but many anglers are encouraging other anglers to release them so that they can grow larger.
