Because of its size, productivity and visitor amenities, Big Lake is considered one of the best White Mountains fishing lakes. Fishing is excellent in summer typically before midday when water quality is best and trout are most active. Try fishing weed edges or in shallower water where aquatic insects are emerging and fish or crayfish may be hunting. Bait and shore fishermen can try anything from worms to PowerBait, especially with strong scents to lure fish out of any leftover winter slump. While all water is cool and fresh, shore fishing should be just as successful as fishing from a boat. Launching large boats is difficult this year due to low water. If you do get a small boat on the lake, try trolling spinners and flies. To attract cutthroat, use lures that resemble crayfish or their movement. Brook trout will hit flies, but also try nightcrawlers on the bottom. Check US Forest Service for road closures and fire restriction updates.
