Springtime in Big Bear Lake is Great for Trout Fishing Trips.
Springtime in Big Bear Lake means lots of hungry rainbow trout. The water level remains high and the fishing is ready to explode! This year, Big Bear Municipal Water District officials anticipate one of the best fishing seasons ever. Not only is the lake full, but the lake is thriving with thousands of rainbow trout. In fact, the alpine lake is famous for its “pink-meat holdovers.”

Big Bear Lake is a first-rate trout fishery and one of only a handful of Southern California lakes to be planted with rainbow trout on a regular basis. In addition to the great trout action, Big Bear Lake has both largemouth and small mouth bass, making it a popular fishing retreat for bass anglers. Other varieties of fish include catfish, crappie, pumpkinseed and bluegill.

Fishermen looking for boat rentals are amply served by five marinas that offer fishing and pontoon boats. Licenses and tackle can also be purchased at the marinas. Licensed fishing guides offer a more in-depth fishing experience for trollers and downriggers. Both public boat launch ramps on the North Shore are set to open April 1 and will remain open through November. The lake is also accessible from all shoreline vantage points for easy fishing from shore.
