"Bear Lake is a natural body of water straddling the Utah-Idaho border in the northeastern corner of the state. As Utah’s second-largest freshwater lake at 20 miles long and 8 miles wide, there is plenty of room for waterskiing, swimming, scuba diving, and sailing on or below its breathtakingly blue surface. Three state-owned facilities provide boating, camping, and picnicking. Key Species: Cutthroat trout, lake trout, Bonneville cisco, and whitefish.
In the winter,snowmobilers and ice anglers are drawn to the area. However, the lake doesn’t always freeze. Bear Lake is famous for it's annual January cisco run. Bear Lake cutthroat are quite predacious, so biologists have stocked them in
lakes and reservoirs across the state hoping they will help control nongame fish."
