Bear Lake is a lake located just 13.7 miles from Steamboat Springs, in Routt County, on CR7. Bear Lake offers some really remote camping and beautiful sceneries. Anglers will have a variety of fish including perch, largemouth bass, bream, bluegill, northern pike and crappie to try and hook here. this lake is pretty tough, you want to make sure and find out what each fish is hitting off. This being a lake dominated by panfish you might want to try different color jigs on a 1/4oz jighead. The Northerns in this lake usually hit on anything white. We usually use 3-4" white stickbaits, spinners and or jigs. Early Morning and right before sundown is usually best for bigger Pike.
