Upper Kern holding @ 1200 CFS- River Clear
Upper Kern River 20 Mile Section (north of Kern River Fly Shop) The upper Kern is flowing at 1200 CFS Water temperature is 55 to 60 degrees. Be careful and cautious wading as the river is still up and dangerous. You can still have fun fishing the back eddies and slower runs. Big fish have started to move into the upper river from Lake Isabella and double digit fish are being caught. Check out the picture below of the giant trout caught last week. We are seeing hatches of Yellow Sallies and a great imitation is a size 16 Yellow Stimulator . You can also swing some streamers down and across and do well.
