Fishing for $50K Trout Tournament

Big Bear Lake's Fishin' for $50K Trout Derby

Over the past seven years Fishin' for $50K Trout Derby has become a staple event in Big Bear Lake. We've had great turnouts with quality trout fishing and lots of great prizes. Of course the one thing we are most proud of is our loyal anglers who return year after year to enjoy a great weekend of fishing in Big Bear Lake!

This year we've decided to put our beloved Fishin' for $50K Trout Derby on a one-year hiatus. However, we plan to bring back Fishin' for $50K next year with flying colors giving anglers more ways to win big money and awesome prizes.

The fishing will continue to be great in Big Bear Lake, including pink-meat holdover rainbow trout. There is plenty of shoreline to fish from, or we have six full-service marinas to help you get on the lake for some trolling action. Also, you might consider going out on the lake with a knowledgeable Big Bear fishing guide to get inside tips on the hot spots and what their biting on! Of course Big Bear Lake has two public boat launch ramps if you plan to bring your own boat.

You can find everything you need for your next fishing trip at or call 800-424-4232.

Tight Lines & Great Fishing!
