We are in run off season with flows at 4500 cfs. Fishing the Upper Kern will be tough. If you want to fish the upper Kern , stay out of the water and fish the slow eddies next to the shore. The river is on its way down and should be fishing excellent in about 2 weeks. Click here for flies:

Lake Isabella- The Tug is the Drug Carp on the fly is HOT as the flats are here. Sight fishing for cloopers, cruisers and tailers haa been very good.

Lower Kern River below Isabella Lake – The Lower Kern River from Isabella dam down to democrat is flowing around 3500 cfs. The lower Kern River from Erskine Creek to Democrat Dam downstream to Hart Park is muddy. Our advice is to not fish down here until flows come down to under 1000cfs.

The small creeks of the Southern Sierra are fishing excellent! Size 16 stimis and soft hackle emergers have been really productive as well as 16-18 pheasant tails.
