Big Bear Lake Vacation Rentals for Fishing Enthusiasts
Anglers who want to fish Big Bear Lake will love ourBig Bear Lake Vacation Rentals. Of the many recreation lakes in Southern California, Big Bear Lake is the largest. While fishing the fully stocked lake, you'll enjoy peaceful views of the mountain forests and find tranquility in the awe inspiring waterscapes. That is, until you feel that tug at your line, and you pull back your rod at just the right moment, next thing you know you're playing tug-of-war with a beautiful Rainbow Trout. As you pull your catch out of the water and get a good look at the size of the fish on your hook, take a moment to enjoy the sound of the cool water splashing. This is fishing. This is Big Bear Lake at its finest, and we're open all year round. We offerprivate Vacation Rental cabins throughout the Big Bear Lake region, so you can choose from any number of locations. It's better than a resort, because a private cabin is more fun. These rentals are short term and come fully furnished for your stay. We're sure to have a cabin that matches your expectation for the perfect fishing vacation.
Select a cabin near the North Shore and bring your fishing boat. You can launch at one of two public boat launches operating April thru October. The Duane Boyer Public Launch on the west side is about 1 and a half miles from Fawnskin. On the East Side, you can launch your vessel from the Carol Morrison Public Launch until 6 pm. Be sure to park in the provided areas so that you can disembark after gates are closed to incoming vehicles. Prefer the South Shore? There you can enjoy fly fishing at Eagle Point. Rent a boat from Pleasure Point Landing, or visit Pine Knot Marina. 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, Big Bear Queen (corner of Paine Rd. and LakeView Dr.), Big Bear Mountain Jr. Market, and Alpine Sports Center are some the region's shops. 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.
After a day of fishing, you can relax in the hot tub or Jacuzzi at your private Big Bear Lake cabin. Plan your vacation at one of our pet friendly Big Bear Lake Vacation Rentals, and the dog will thank you, too! Bring along the family and don't leave your pet at home. If fishing Big Bear Lake is what you want to do, then our cabins are where you'll want to stay.
