To help maintain Big Bear Lake as a premium trout fishery by planting trophy sized fish each year prior to the May Trout Classic. The May Trout Classic will remain a family oriented event with two divisions for the kids between the ages of five (5) and fifteen (15). The kids of participants vie for 1st through 3rd places and have a chance at winning rods and reels and trophies. Last year we were able to give a fishing pole to every child under eleven thanks to our generous sponsors and your entry monies. You make it all happen!
How It Works
We take the entry money and use approximately thirty percent towards buying trophy sized fish to plant in the lake. We use about twenty-five percent for the cash prizes (these are loose figures based on the number of entrants). The rest goes to prizes for all our hard working participants and minimal costs (like insurance, the awards building…) The entire tournament is run by volunteers. Without these volunteers and the many wonderful participants, there would be no May Trout Classic.
