Big Bear Lake is a good producer of wild brown trout and bass. Running clear and cool below Big Bear Dam, Bear Creek also supports a good population of rainbows and, some say, a few salmon. While I've never seen a salmon caught out of the stream, I know they exist in Big Bear Lake. So it is possible. Two trailheads east of Snow Valley Ski Resort provide good access to the stream below. While the fishing is good in the upper reaches of the stream, the further down you go the better it gets and the greater the ratio of browns to rainbows. This year, even before the runoff was complete, I met an angler down near the confluence with the Santa Ana that had caught and released a 19" brown along with a couple of nice 'bows. In the last few years with the improved water situations and nicer weather it could be even better in the years to come.


Moonridge Animal Park's getting a new home

Michel Nolan, Staff Writer

Sun Telegram Newspaper

BIG BEAR LAKE - Here's what's new at the zoo.

The latest development in the Moonridge Animal Park's relocation project is an artist's nearly complete 3D scale model of the new wolf enclosure.

Third District Supervisor Neil Derry has spearheaded the effort to push the relocation along.

"This should be a very nice project," Derry said. "A Disney artist is working on the project model."

The model unveiling is set for 3 to 4 p.m. May 21 at the Big Bear Parks and Rec office, 41220 Park Ave., Big Bear Lake.

The zoo's new site is a 10.4-acre parcel in the Moonridge area of Big Bear Lake.

"The property was purchased at a cost of $2.1million - a steal in that area. The new site is near utilities and needs minimal grading," Derry said. "We'll develop 7.5 acres for the zoo, and the rest will be a riperian area."

Plans for a beer garden are also in the works.

An environmental report should be completed by August, Derry said.

"The best-case scenario would be to have a possible grand opening one year after that - August 2013," he said.

The project is in the Initial Study review process.

What makes the Moonridge Animal Park unique is that all zoo inhabitants were rescued.

Of those, 75percent are returned to the wild, with just 25percent kept as permanent residents.

The park is home to more than 100 animals - from snakes to bears.

Animals include black bears and

grizzlies, wolves, coyotes, mountain lions and bobcats, foxes, raccoons and eagles, docent Pam Brostedt said.

"We are not a zoo," said staff member Margaret Schwab. "We're a rescue organization, and all the animals who need to be here are here."

The current Moonridge Animal Park is open daily year-round - except for Christmas Day.

"I'm really excited about this project," Derry said. "The current park is open, and we invite people to come up and enjoy it now," Derry said.
