The first of April marks the beginning of our season out on the lake. The East Ramp on the North Shore is open to the public for boat launching, picnicking, and fishing from the shore. The hours for East Ramp are from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM, daily. They are extended to 7:00 PM on May 10. The local marinas are also open for boat rentals and great fishing advice.
All boats on the lake must have a permit and state registration. You can obtain permits at the boat ramps and most of the marinas. Motorized boats pay $25 for a one day permit and kayaks and canoes are charged a fee of $15. Maximum boat size is 26 feet.
If your purpose is fishing, check out our blog post (Tyler, this will be linked) for Big Bear Lake’s best spots. You can fish for rainbow trout, largemounth and smallmouth bass, carp and catfish.
Fishing is best when the lake temperatures are cold and locals are reporting an unusually busy season. Normally in the Spring, fish begin biting at the east end of the lake. This year catches have been reported from Stanfield Cutoff to the Dam. For bait, crawlers always work well while some fishermen use their favorite color of dough bait.
Whether you come to the resort to snowboard or fish, expect beautiful weather this weekend. The skies will be sunny and temperatures will linger above the mid 60’s.
After a beautiful winter with mostly moderate temperatures, we’re busy planning this Summer’s outdoor adventures.
