The Castle fire is 17% contained and continues @68,0000+ Acres. A major portion of the Golden Trout Wilderness has burned , including The Little Kern River Drainage, Forks of the Kern all the way up to Kern Lakes on the upper Kern River. The Sequoia National Forest is closed at this time. Fishing is open from Kernville upstream to Riverkern and the Forest Service boundry. In Kernville, the smoke is very bad at this time.

We are having really good fishing in other areas. Please see the “Premium Report” for details.
