Spring Boating and Fishing in Big Bear Lake has begun!!

Big Bear Lake and the Public Boat Launches are officially open so the 2012 fishing and boating season has sprung! Big Bear Mountain Resorts are both still open so you can spend your morning on the lake and the afternoon on the slopes! Trout love the cold water so it's the perfect time to take advantage of amazing spring fishing. The Lake is regularly stocked with Rainbow Trout, with a limit of 5 per day. Other species in the Lake include large mouth bass, small mouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, sunfish, carp, channel catfish and pumpkin seed. Big Bear Lake hosts numerous fishing tournaments every year like the May Trout Classic and Fishin for 50K, with the chance to "catch the big one" and win amazing prizes.

Amgen Tour of California, the Big Bear Climb coming to Big Bear Lake, May 18, 2012.

Big Bear Lake is proud to be hosting the finish of Stage 6 of the 2012 Amgen Tour of California, the Big Bear Climb. If the 2010 route was a killer, this slightly toned down route will be a crusher. Stage 6 will be all about strategy as the riders will still be feeling the sting of the Bakersfield Time Trial from the day before.
After a cruise down historic Sierra Highway, the racers will head into the Angeles National Forest. After a short stretch on Angeles Forest Highway, the route will turn onto Mt. Emma Road. Following the first climb of the day and then a descent to Fort Tejon Road, the first KOM at Mountain High ski area will be reached via a 12-mile climb to a 7,000-foot summit at Angeles Crest Highway. There will be a brief respite as the riders descend into Wrightwood and then over to Highway 138. The route will once again go vertical as it passes through Crestline and Lake Arrowhead, and then onto the Rim of the World Highway. Entering the Big Bear area, the riders will take the northern route around Big Bear Lake and then tackle the last ascent to the finish at a more than 7,000-foot elevation at the Snow Summit ski area.
If you are interested in joining the World's Best Cyclists as they take on the greatest stage in America's biggest cycling race, we encourage you to participate in the "King of the Mountain Experience." The race is open to all levels of cyclists and will take place on race day, May 18, 2012. For more information or to enter please visit the King of the Mountain website. Big Bear Vacations is a proud sponsor of this event and we are offering lodging specials that include a chance to win a VIP Race Package.
