It’s easy to plan an action packed getaway weekend in Big Bear Lake in October! This weekend you can expect some great fall events and if you’re skilled enough you just might win some money too!
Big Bear Lake Troutfest
By day you can get in on Troutfest on Saturday, October 1, 2011 and Sunday October 2, 2011. Troutfest is a two day trout fishing derby with four divisions you can enter while trying to catch the “big fish.” Try one or two of our best places to fish in Big Bear Lake for a chance at the prize. It’s a good idea to sign up early because there are only 1,000 entries available for the competition. Even if you aren’t competing it is fun to watch and hang around for the awards ceremony on Sunday.
