- Rating: Good
- Conditions: Biologist Scott Tolentino reports that fishing continues to be good on the east side for anglers who are jigging and trolling in 75 to 85 feet of water. Remember, you may only keep a cutthroat trout from Bear Lake if it has a healed fin clip (usually the adipose fin). If the cutthroat trout has all its fins intact — and even if it's a tagged fish — you must release it.
