WON Big Bear Troutfest, Oct. 2-3

Now heading into it’s 16th year, the successful Big Bear Lake Troutfest will once again be returning to Big Bear Lake on October 2nd – 3rd, 2021.

Getting back to business and keeping the tradition alive!  There will be tens of thousands of dollars in cash and prizes at stake, trophies and prizes for adult big fish winners (men and women’s division), Big 5 Kids Division ( both boys and girls ), and the Big Bear community will as always roll out the red carpet for all the WON anglers!

We have held the entry fee to $75 for adults and $50 for juniors (14 and under), and the first 600 entries will receive a goodie bag with a selection of items from event sponsors.

Here is just some of what you get when you sign up for the WON Big Bear Troutfest:

1) Each person that signs up for the 2021 Big Bear TroutfesT will have their angler number added to the raffle bin for a chance to win the grand raffle prize boat and motor package. On Sunday, October 3rd at the end of the awards program, one lucky angler will win that prize. In addition to the grand raffle prize, there are tons of other raffle prize awards dished out.

2) Trophies and merchandise will be awarded to the top five winners in each of the following categories: Adult Male, Adult Female, Big 5 Kids Division Male (14 and under) and Big 5 Kids Division Female (14 and under). This event is perfect for the entire family, and we have prizes and levels so that anyone can win!


3) A Blind Bogey Contest in which participants can win cash. 10 random weights will be chosen for each days combined weight. If your daily weighs is closest to, but not over the pre-determined Blind Bogey weight, you win your share of the money pooled for that day. All anglers that have signed up will be eligible for the cash that will be awarded as part of the Blind Bogey Contest.

4) Of course, the fishing should be great at Big Bear Lake, and as always, WON stocks thousands of dollars worth of trout in the lake prior to the event, with the help and cooperation of the Big Bear Municipal Water District.

This year, as in the past, this event will be limited to only 1,000 entries and it does fill up fast, so don’t delay on getting in on this one. For more information on the 16th annual Western Outdoor News Big Bear Lake Troutfest click HERE, or call TD Billy Egan (949) 366-0248.
