Bear Lake, Kalkaska

Hey guys, I’m heading up to Bear Lake in Kalkaska this weekend. I’ve never fished the lake or any of the lakes in the area for that matter. I know it’s a trout lake with the usual panfish and bass. If anyone has any advice on the lake or the area in general it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I've fished there a few times both in the summer and ice fishing. Mainly catch sunfish with some bonus rainbow trout. Rainbows are hard to find and travel at various depths (gets to over 60 feet deep) Id suggest using a fish finder to located fish and move until you find them. No sense in staying at an unproductive hole fore more than 30 minites.
