The beautiful lakes and waterways that make up the Big Bear, California region provide the perfect place for anglers to get out and cast a line. Teeming with a variety of trout, Big Bear Lake has long been an oasis for those looking for a place to get away and get into their favorite sport or hobby. The Big Bear Lake Fishing Association has long been renowned as a primary resource when it comes to Southern California’s Alpine lake fishing scene and in 2019, the association is hosting 5 tournaments that will inevitably beckon to anglers from near and far. While the summer tournaments are bound to please, May 18-20th will be dedicated to the much-loved spring fishing festival at Pine Knot Marina.
The Big Bear Lake Fishing Association Fishing Festival at Pine Knot Marina is a great way to kick off the spring season and an event that provides tons of family-friendly fun. This three-day celebration of angling provides opportunities for fishing enthusiasts of all ages to get out on the water and test out their skills. Participants are registered according to age with 18 and up being considered an adult participant. Anglers can pick a single species to fish or a combination to increase their chances of reeling in the biggest fish of them all! Weigh-ins occur at the end of each tournament day with prizes being awarded based on length and weight.
Day one of the festival and tournament play host to a vendor show where guests can browse some of the most innovative products on the market. A fishing club booth dedicated to young anglers ensures that those learning to fish have the tools, guidance, and gear necessary to be successful on the water. Family members who are at the festival to support fellow anglers will want to take advantage of discounts on paddlewheel boat tours that travel the lake when competition isn’t happening. With food, drinks and fun everywhere you look, the fishing festival at Pine Knot Marina is sure to please everyone in the family. Pine Knot Marina is conveniently located at 439 Point Knot Avenue for those looking to participate in the event.
