John Cantrell, owner/guide, and Cliff Fowler, master guide, have a combined fishing experience on Big Bear Lake of 80 years.
John and Cliff are two thoroughly well experienced fishermen who know the secrets of the trade and the in’s and out’s of Big Bear Lake.
JOHN CANTRELL – OWNER/GUIDE
John Cantrell first came to Big Bear Lake on family vacations when he was a child. He continued to come back when he had a family of his own. In 1989, he met “Capt. Pete”, who taught him everything there was to know about fishing in Big Bear Lake.
In 1991, John took over his guiding business and Cantrell Fishing Guide Service began…
With the longest running guide service on Big Bear Lake, John knows Big Bear Lake and loves to share fishing tips and the secrets spots. Beware, though! John has some jokes that will either make you LOL or just shake your head.
To see an angler with an ear-to-ear grin when they land their “Trophy Rainbow Trout” or the young angler who catches their first fish; the sparkle in their eyes and knowing that the memory will be with them for the rest of their lives. That is what makes me happy! – John
CLIFF FOWLER – MASTER GUIDE
Cliff Fowler fell in love with Big Bear in 1965 when his parents built their first vacation home in Moonridge.
After selling the valley’s best-known fishing shop, he teamed up with John Cantrell, owner of Cantrell’s Fishing Guide Service; which has been the longest running charter service since 1991. Cliff Fowler has been the host of “Fowlers Fish Tales” on KBHR 93.3 for over 15 years.
