Bear Lake Fishing Report from Pugstones Sporting

Heads up anglers…Bear Lake marina is frozen solid and all around the lake is starting to freeze up as well. I am working on an APP for iPhone and Android so that I can update things quicker along with a Blog as well so within the next few weeks I should have that up and running.

The lake had been fishing red hot but with the frozen lake it hasn’t shown itself for a couple of days. Be careful if you do happen to get out on a different location so when the ice gets pushed it won’t hinder you from getting back to your truck and trailer. As of right now no ice is hard enough to ice fish off of but possibly by next weekend we may be able to get out. I will keep everyone updated!

Ice fishing off of Laketown Reservoir has been producing some nice fishing. Nothing great in size but some good rainbows with some in the 3lb category. Fishing off of the Garden City Pond has also been good but nothing of any size out here. Good for kids but when you take them be careful with the problems of our well pumping water into it the east side that is open could cause some issues. Stay in the middle of the pond. Fishing off of Birch Creek up Woodruff and Monte Cristo has been OK. I haven’t received anything that states it is red hot but some anglers are catching some nice tiger trout. As for excess to these areas you may need a snow mobile or good 4 wheel drive. Come prepared! I will have all of my ice fishing gear in next week but I will be out of town on Tuesday and Wednesday at a buyers show so I can’t help until Thursday. I do have augers and ice flies and all of your Kastmasters and tubes jigs that are needed on Bear Lake and surrounding fisheries. I also rent out a Jiffy 10″ auto auger and sled. They rent out for $30 a day with everything you need. If you want a nice big ice shelter to go along with this package it is only $50 a day. The size of this make it very easy to have 6 people in but I like more room for everyone and so I say for 4 it is perfect.

I am also renting out cross country skis and snowshoes. I am rented out this weekend for the snowshoes but I do have the cross country skis in. Call me and set up time and what boot size you will need. 435-757-9430

Thanks again to all of you for your business support and I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Please call or text me anytime for fishing and ice conditions. I do still have some octagon Cisco nets in stock. They are 8′ and 12′. If you need to call and purchase over the phone or reserve I can do that.
