Upper Kern River 20 Mile Section (north of Kern River Fly Shop to Johnsondale Bridge)
The Upper Kern is finally starting to clear up and running below 300 cfs. Anglers are having more success fishing early in the morning and nymphing deep. FB pheasant tails and bright attractors like the Tungsten Teddy are the ticket in these warm and tea stained conditions.
Check out this nice rainbow caught by SSFFClub member Sergio in the 20 mile section over the weekend.
