The 32nd Annual Jim Hall Memorial May Trout Classic is the longest running fishing tournament at Big Bear Lake, and has become a family tradition with multiple generations participating in the annual event. The May Trout Classic is known as ‘The Granddaddy of Them All’ because the lake is stocked with enormous trophy-sized trout. The top nine largest trout caught share or split in prize money, and an opportunity to catch a tagged trout worth $10,000. To keep this family tradition alive all participants under 16 years of age with a paid adult get free entry into the tournament, and are eligible for all prizes.

Big Bear Lake is known as the birthplace of mountain bike racing, and Team Big Bear has been producing exciting Mountain Bike events in Big Bear Lake for over two decades. Races are open for all levels of cyclists, from professional to novice.
