This lake is part of Bear Lake County Park off Highway US-2. This is a juvenile fishing rules lake: only juveniles (under age 15), licensed adults accompanied by a juvenile, or anglers with a disability who have a designated harvester companion card are allowed to fish. This lake has largemouth bass, perch, and rainbow trout. Bear Lake is stocked annually with broodstock, put-grow-and-take, and catchable size rainbows. Channel catfish are periodically stocked which provides a good fishery.
