About Us

The Big Bear Lake Fishing Association was originally established by  Lynn Crawford, Preston Piveroff, Cliff Fowler, and countless other forgotten souls in the 1980s. Their Mission was to generate money for our lake and to promote family fishing combined with our famous original mountain tournament now called the Lynn Crawford Memorial. This is the blueprint of our current Fishing Association. We are trying to host new fishing tournaments focusing on our young people and families. We have added a little technology since our fish fathers started this great organization and with the help of Insta Catch, friends, members, and business members we hope to match what Jim, Lynn, Preston and Cliff Fowler accomplished over 30 years ago.
