Fishermen looking for boat rentals are amply served by five marinas that offer fishing and pontoon boats. Some marinas offer fishing licenses and tackle for purchase. Licensed fishing guides offer a more in-depth fishing experience for trollers and downriggers. The lake is also accessible from all shoreline vantage points for easy fishing from shore. Visit www.BigBear.com for more info.
Big Bear Lake will once again honor the Department of Fish & Wildlife's Free Fishing Days this year on Saturday, July 4 and Saturday, September 5. A fishing license is not required to fish the lake on these dates. Big Bear Lake is one of few lakes in Southern California to offer this unique bonus for boaters and fishermen.
