Big Bear Municipal Water District has gone GREEN!

Boating During Low Lake Level Conditions

With the low water levels, rocks and other hard surfaces are closer to the surface, making many places in the lake hazardous for boating and public safety. While some hazards are marked, it is not possible to mark every hazard. Please exercise extreme caution while boating on the lake to prevent injury and damage to your watercraft. The MWD recommends staying at least 100 yards from shore while operating on the lake.

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!
