Added: Mar 08, 2019
Category: Fishing in Big Bear

Fishing licenses are available at most sporting goods stores and marinas in Big Bear. The State of California requires anglers to hold a valid fishing permit. If you are 16 or older, you need a license.

There are various restrictions depending upon whether you are fishing the lake or the streams. Also, there are equipment restrictions as well.

NOTE: A basic license is for using one rod at a time.

Fishing in the Lake

Fishing Big Bear Lake is open year round, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Open every holiday, no days are restricted. One of the things that make Big Bear lake such an awesome place to fish is the regularly stocked Rainbow Trout. There is a daily limited imposed of 5 fish per day. Other species in the Lake include large mouth bass, small mouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, sunfish, carp, channel catfish and pumpkinseed.

Fishing in the Streams

There are two remote fishing streams, touted to be some of the best in California, although remote, Deep Creek and Bear Creek is worth the effort. Both feature the native Brown Trout. There is a limit imposed of 2 per day on sizes of 8" or larger. Anglers are suggested to use the catch and release method.  Anglers are limited to using only artificial lures without bait on barbless hooks.

In order to get your directions to both Deep & Bear Creeks, the Discovery Center offers maps. Important note to be aware of is that you will need an Adventure Pass to park at the trailheads nearest the streams.
