There are so many things to love about Big Bear. Our ski season draws visitors from far and wide to enjoy the downhill thrills. And when the snow melts, the thrills move to the lake. June is a great time for anglers to plan a getaway in Big Bear, because the only thing better than that thrill of a tug on your line is landing a fish and winning some cash in the process.
The fun starts on June 3-4 with the Fishin for 50K Trout Tournament. Entries are limited, and you can buy your tickets at this link. 5 tagged trout are placed in the lake and each is worth a cool $10K. 25 trout will land $200 each with another 50 tagged for a $50 prize. But the winning keeps going with a raffle at the awards ceremony where thousands of dollars worth of gear and accessories will be given away. You could even win a Hobie Kayak. And the fun also helps fund better fishing in Big Bear Lake with $20 from each entry fee contributed to the Big Bear Lake trout fishery program.
Aaron’s Big Bear Lake Bass Tournament continues on June 10th with payouts for the biggest fish. This tournament continues throughout fishing season, and is a great opportunity to catch some bass with a chance at catching some cash as well. You’ll want to register in advance for this event. More details at this link.
The Big Bear Municipal Water District is sponsoring the 14th annual Carp Roundup on June 17th and 18th. Carp is an invasive species that threatens the Big Bear Lake ecosystem. You can help lower the threat and maybe win some cash in the process. The roundup is open to boaters, shore fishers, and bow fishers. Prizes are offered for the biggest and smallest fish caught. Sign up is for two-person teams, and you can access the entry form at this link.
