Lake Maintenance Going On

As we discussed last week… the lake was up. This week we’re not up, but we remain the same and with the approximate evaporation of 1″ a week, that means we got around an inch of runoff to maintain our current level. However the lake has risen over 7 degrees in the last two weeks up to 48.2 degrees F with all this sunshine! Spring is just around the corner and so is the opening of the boat ramps.In preparation for that our maintenance teams are working inside the buildings at both ramps to make some necessary repairs. The lobby and counter area is being remodeled at the East Ramp to allow more room in the customer area and the counter is being extended to give the ramp attendants more elbow room when working together on busy days.

Night Fishing Info

Big Bear Lake offers a unique experience for locals and tourists to fish at night. Recently, the Big Bear Sheriff’s Station has received several reports of bright lights being used on the North shoreline that shine across the Lake into the windows of homes located on the South shore. Please use common courtesy when fishing at night. Halogen lights, vehicle headlights and the use of generators with exterior lighting fixtures create a general nuisance. The use of Coleman-style lanterns and flashlights are recommended for night fishing. The Big Bear Sheriff’s Station thanks the fishing community for its cooperation and wishes you tight lines!

Big Bear Municipal Water District

  • The Big Bear Municipal Water District is an independent special district governed by a five-member board of directors elected by geographic division.

    The MWD is responsible for the overall management of Big Bear Lake, Southern California’s premier recreational Lake.The primary goal of the MWD is the stabilization of Big Bear Lake at as constant a water level as possible, given the availability of water and financing. A more constant lake level increases recreational opportunities, stabilizes property values, improves water quality, aesthetic benefits and supports a healthier fish and wildlife environment.
