Predict the level of Big Bear Lake at noon on May 1 and win prize

Water Level Staff Gauge, Measuring Water

What do you think the lake level will be at noon on May 1, 2017?

The Big Bear Municipal Water District is hosting a contest to have folks predict what the lake level will beat that place in time once the snow melts and all the runoff hopefully flows into the less-than-full lake bed. You can win a fishing rod and loaded tackle box specifically geared for Big Bear Lake catching, not just fishing, by being the person whose guess is closest to reality.

All predictions must be submitted to by 4 p.m. on February 15, 2017. Include your name, telephone number and the predicted Big Bear Lake level, down from full in feet and inches, at noon on May 1, 2017. Check out the current lake at

There is no entry fee and only 1 entry per person. The first person with the estimate closest to the actual level will win the prize.
