WON Huge Big Bear Troutfest Coming Soon!

Klamath boat AND Ford truck both up for grabs at the Oct. 1 and 2 WON TroutfesT

SAN CLEMENTE — The Western Outdoor News Big Bear Lake TroutfesT is a mere two weeks away — Oct. 1 and 2 — and we’ve already hit the 600-angler mark. This event is shaping up to be full by the time the ‘Fest rolls around, so get your entries in a.s.a.p. And it should really come as no surprise since not only will a boat be given away, but a Ford truck is also up for grabs.

The boat will be a 15-foot Klamath Advantage S outfitted with a Mercury outboard, and one lucky raffle ticket holder is guaranteed to go home with the rig.

Klamath Boats has long focused on designing and building crafts catering to the serious fisherman/woman. Their rigs are simple, sturdy and effective for chasing an array of both fresh and saltwater game fish. Name your species and Klamath certainly has a boat with you in mind.


For the trout angler, however, few rigs can compare to the 15 Advantage S.


The Ford truck, however, will not be a raffle prize, but rather a tagged fish award.


At this year’s 2011 Western Outdoor News Big Bear Lake TroutfesT, Oct. 1 and 2, the Ford Dealers of Southern California are sponsoring the TroutfesT tagged fish program with a 2011 Ford F-150 Super Crew XLT 4X2 valued at $30,000.

In addition to the tagged fish valued at 30 grand, there will be hundreds of additional tagged trout worth $25,000.


The tagged fish worth the Ford truck will pay out only if caught during official contest hours on Saturday, Oct. 1st.


Thanks in part to the efforts of the Ford Dealers of Southern California, and YUM Bait Company, these fish will be randomly and equi-distantly distributed throughout the waters of Big Bear Lake prior to the tournament.


Each contestant will receive official tagged fish rules in their check-in packet, which can be obtained during the Friday check-in Sept. 30th at the Big Bear Municipal Water District.

There will also be tens of thousands of dollars in other cash and prizes at stake, trophies and prizes for adults big fish winners( men and women's division), kids ( both boys and girls ), and the Big Bear community will as always role out the red carpet for all the WON anglers!
