Big Bear Lake, CA, April 2, 2015 – Yesterday, Big Bear Municipal Water District opened the Carol Morrison East Launch Ramp for the 2015 season. The public boat launch ramp, which has been closed for the winter, gives boat owners the opportunity to launch onto the lake for boating and fishing, and is especially good news for anglers that prefer trolling over shoreline fishing. In addition to the public launch ramp opening, five Big Bear Lake marinas are now open for the 2015 season. On May 8, the Duane Boyer West Launch Ramp will open offering even more public access to the lake.
To celebrate Big Bear Lake’s opening day, Big Bear MWD planted approximately one million fingerling trout into the lake. This should help increase the trout population for years to come. In addition to the fresh load of fingerling trout, the MWD plans to plant two more truckloads of 250,000 larger trout that are approximately 10 to 12 inches within the next two weeks. In addition to the ‘pink-meat’ that Big Bear Lake is famous for, it also has both large mouth and small mouth bass, catfish, crappie, and bluegill.
