moored boat in marinaOne of the most popular activities to partake in is fishing. You can embark on this adventure alone or with the whole family, and if you want to enlist help from a professional, you can join a group led by a fishing guide. You’re likely to find species such as trout, bass, catfish and crappies in the lake’s populous waters. Big Bear has a well-earned reputation as a fisherman’s paradise, and visitors can even rent their own fishing boat from one of the lake’s several marinas.

Speaking of boats, if fishing isn’t your scene, you can simply traverse the waters. Fishing isn’t the only use for the lake. Spending a day on a boat is a great chance to relax, unwind, and take in the sunshine. In addition to fishing vessels, a variety of marinas offer pontoon boats and kayaks to explore the lake with. With average temperatures that rarely surpass the 80s, the blue lake and inviting breeze can provide an unbelievable respite.

Hiking and biking provide additional activities to enjoy in Big Bear’s great outdoors, and museums and shops provide indoor attractions, too. Retire to a luxury vacation rental, and you’ve got all the makings of a great trip. Top-of-the-line amenities, a stunning floor plan and a gourmet kitchen make a rental home the right choice.
