Kern River Fly Fishing Report November 21, 2020 – Quick report from the Professional Guides that are on the Kern River Everyday!

Come by the shop and get your fly fishing supplies! We are open! We ask that you wear a mask please! You can also stop by our new vending machine and get flies and other terminal tackle when the shop is closed or crowded.

For those of you searching for stockers, fishing in the 20 Mile Section is excellent with the recent stocking from the DFW this week. 2 truck loads of hatchery fish from the Fresno hatchery were put in Tuesday and Wednesday this week in the 20 mile section.

Fire Restrictions were lifted last week in the Inyo and Sequoia National Forest and some roads have been opened. Check with the local ranger district office for more information. The wild trout section is open and has been open since they opened the river in September!

Last summer the DFW stocked some Golden trout in the 20 Mile Section and one of our clients caught one yesterday on 11-20-20.

All the guides have been doing excellent with their clients. We are seeing a good hatch around 2pm and fish are eating on top.

Wild Trout are plentiful and the river is full of them. Check out the picture below from the last 2 days.

The Wild Trout Section is open and has been fishing excellent. Catch and Release fishing restrictions are in effect in this section. No Bait!

Kern River Fly Fishing Report-Quick Report November 2, 2020

Guides Report by Ryan Buhler:

With the dropping water temps we have started concentrating on pocket water from River Kern up to Mcnally’s. Above there, the water temps have been in the mid 40’s and the action has slowed down, but all techniques have been getting fish. Mayflies(Epeorus and Blue Wing Olives) are getting grabs more and there seems to be less stonefly action. Midge and caddis are also on the menu as we get farther into fall. Small mayflies size 18 to 22 and zebra midges size 16 to 20 have been most popular.Fish those in a tandem rig with a big stonefly. Big fish love a big meal and at times that big stonefly can provide that. Find the best water temps and you will find the most active fish.┬áRyan

Wild fish are doing well and the reproduction of wild fish is doing well. Most of the guides are catching wild fish on their trips.

“Premium Members Report” will be up in a few days with new Buhler Bros Fly Tying videos also Guy Jeans’ New Casting Videos Series and video reports.

20 Mile Section

Kern River Fly Fishing Report: Anglers coming in to the shop the last few days have been giving different reports for the 20 Mile Section. Some folks are doing very well and some are only catching a few. More folks are doing well than not. Hatches are sporadic and if some anglers are lucky enough to be in the right spot at the right time, they may catch a great hatch of BWO’s. If you’re focused on hatchery trout and only trying to catch the easy hatchery trout, you will not do well. If you focus fishing in heavily fished areas that you normally catch a lot of fish, you will not do well. It’s time to think outside the box and adventure into areas you normally don’t fish this time of year. Wild fish are abundant in the 20 mile section and stepping up your European nymphing game will get you more fish than most.

Flies to use this time of year:

Albino Midge, Coffee Cup Stone, Kern Emerger, Tungsten Yellow Sallie Nymph

Special Regulations Section is fishing excellent according to the many fly anglers venturing in there.
