Get Out on the Water and Cast a Line

With warmer temperatures on your side once again, spring is the ultimate season for heading to Big Bear in the name of fishing fun. Once you have your tackle box in hand, you can either head to the shoreline of Big Bear Lake or consider renting a pontoon or fishing boat for the duration of your stay and enjoy time out on the waves instead. Big Bear is home to everything from catfish and bass to rainbow trout and more. The marinas at Big Bear open their doors once again to the public starting in April making it easy to plan an early spring outing. If you have your own fishing boat, you can purchase a lake permit and simply set sail from the public launch ramp. Otherwise, there are plenty of rental options available at the local marinas to make your spring getaway even more convenient.
