We've included a boating map of the lake as well as the general rules & regulations on the lake for your convenience. Big Bear Lake is fully stocked and boasts an excellent variety of fish. Catch Black Crappie up to one and half pounds using live minnows and shiners, or use jig with lead head at 1/8th ounce. Blue Catfish are also abundant, can be caught using many kinds of bait, and are loads of fun to reel in using red worms as bait. Bluegill up to 2 pounds can be caught, especially if you remember to use a smaller hook. Use worms, insects, or snails to catch Rainbow trout. Don't forget to cast your line for some bass fishing as well. You can reel in Big Mouth and Small Mouth Bass depending on how deep your sinker falls.

Don't forget to stock up on fishing supplies. There are numerous Fishing Sport Shops in the area. Big Bear Sporting Goods, the Big Bear Queen (corner of Paine Rd. and Lake View Dr.), Big Bear Mountain Jr. Market and the Alpine Sports Center are some the region's shops. Pleasure Point Marina, Holloway’s Marina, and Pine Knot Marina also have supplies and boat rentals of all kinds as well as sell fishing licenses. From lures to bait and fishing poles, you'll be sure to find anything you need to catch the kind of fish you want. Also, the State of California requires a fishing license for anyone 16 years of age or older. A California Fishing License can be obtained online from the Department of Fish and Game. Guests from out of state can save money by acquiring a temporary license.

Fishing from the Dam is prohibited. Fishing from the shore is fine. Some fishermen get up early and sit on either the north or south side of the Dam. The water is colder, allowing for higher oxygen levels.

You can also park your car on either side of Stanfield Cutoff and cast your line. You’ll have to get there early to get a good parking space. Trolling Fishermen need to display a white flag.
