Upper Kern 20 Mile Section
The upper Kern River from Lake Isabella north to 4 miles past the Johnsondale bridge( wild trout section) remains open to fly fishing all year. The upper Kern has cleared up from the recent rains and is fishing good. Here are a few pics from the 20 mile section last week . For those of you that are fishing for hatchery fish, the “Fish and Wild Life” will be stocking the 20 mile section on Tuesday with 3 to 4lb trout for the Thanksgiving weekend.
Lower Kern River below Isabella Lake – Fishing excellent for bass at this time from lake Isabella dam to Bakersfield/Oildale.
