With 5 tagged trout worth $10K each, you could win up to $50K!
Fishin' For $50K is the family event of the season! Bring out the spouse, the kids, the friends, and more to enjoy two days on Big Bear Lake fishing for $50K. Thirty total tagged rainbow trout are all worth cash prizes - 5 are Grand Prize Winners worth $10K each with the next 5 non-grand prize winners worth $500 each. Now that’s worth fishing for!
Participants - or as we say, anglers - are welcome to fish from a boat, a non-motorized vessel, and from shore. Anglers of any age are welcome to participate and fish for prizes! Weight class prizes are given to both adult and child age groups and raffle prizes include adult and child fishing equipment. Just another reason to invite the whole gang to enjoy this event weekend.
During the event, anglers can fish rainbow trout from a boat, a non-motorized vessel, or from the shoreline. Just be sure you're carrying a valid CA fishing license for the duration of the event - and any other time you're fishing.
Entry is $80 for adults and $30 for participants under age 16. Entries are limited to 550 registered anglers.
