I just got a float tube for my birthday and was thinking about going up to Gregory or Big Bear this weekend. Where is the best place to fish/launch in big bear? Any boat permits needed?

First time tubing I would hit something closer to home first and make sure everything works like your waders and fins, no leaks in your tube or waders. And your first time out you want to get used to turning, launching and landing "yes I have seen first timers fall doing both", and figuring out if you have the legs for it some people can go all day and some last an hour thier first time. I see you are in San Clemente I'd maybe try Dana Point, Laguna Niguel Lake or Irvine Lake first before you do a far from home trip.

Good luck out there and let us know how it goes!

Yes learn how to move around in it first and when you do get to big bear you have to purchase a permit which I think is 11-15 bucks.

Welcome, I am on board with these guys be confortable in your tube first time out stay close to home. I have heard of guys testing there gear out in a pool maybe that is a good option.
If you do head up to Big Bear, you do need a permit to launch. When I went I went out of Bolder Bay, great view in that area. Just becareful of the banks if the water is low the drop off into the water is to much to tube it safely, and if the water is high it is still kind of tough to launch at lest that is my experiance with it. There are plenty of spots to launch from up there for me bolder bay gave me the cover I needed from the wind and was just a pleasant area to be. Good luck bro any other question please ask and I am sure we can all chip in our knowledge.

Welcome! Fisher an I have floated big bear before and it cist a pretty penny to launch your tube if I rember it was like 20 bucks r more. Im with these guys stay local but if you do go up there the observatory point is allways productive.
