I made (4) trips to Bear River this year, only caught (2) fish in (4) trips. I fish that lake like any other mountain lake with no success. I have about given up fishing Bear until October and November.....

Wise decision, I too have one heck of a time and normally come away so disgusted I just wanna drown somethin', but I will say Cgage seems to do well there.

Well thanks for the compliment Jimbo but I would have to say that in my few trips this year I haven't done as well as last year.
I figure if I hang around in front of the dam and only catch 2,3, or 4 fish all day when last year that could be done in an hour, then something is off.
Granted it is early and things are better around October normally, but still for June this year is dead. :'(
I will still try it about once a month till it hits again.

The DFG planted Bear for the derby last week, I wonder if any of those planters will help the fishing pick up *:-/ *Bing15 and a friend are going tonight after work, maybe since I'm not with him he'll get the big one *>:( *;).
