Rainbow Trout

If the lake is what draws you, bring up a boat and enjoy yourself. The lake has two public boat launches for easy access to the water. Or rent a boat from Big Bear Marina (909/866-3218). Take a lake tour or a dinner cruise on the Big Bear Queen, a 60-passenger paddlewheel boat. The 90-minute tour includes narration of Big Bear history, celebrity homes and fishing sites. Holloway’s Marina (909/866-5706) offers all types of boats for rent along with canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and windsurfers. Rent a water-ski package that includes boat, driver, equipment and instruction and learn a new sport.

Both marinas rent fishing tackle, licenses and bait. If the catch is the thing, try Alpine Trout Lakes (909/866-4532) where success is guaranteed. Picnic and barbeque facilities on site and for a small charge they will even clean your fish for you.

Cruise the lake with Captain John from Captain John’s Fawn Harbor & Marina in Fawnskin (909/866-6478). This romantic two-hour cruise aboard the quiet electric boat The Serena casts off several times a day and is also available for private charters.

If charter fishing is your thing, try Big Bear Charter Fishing (909/866-2240) and fish with an experienced guide and rental equipment. All ages welcome and snacks are included in this package.

For the more adventurous, try parasailing at Big Bear Parasail & Watersports at Pine Knot Landing (909/866.IFLY). Water skiing and tube tows also happen from this site.
