Kern River Fly Fishing Report March 20, 2019

Upper Kern River 20 Mile Section (north of Kern River Fly Shop to Johnsondale Bridge) Open Year Round

I put some other graphs of the upper Kern on here to show you the different flows in these 3 different sections in the 20 mile section. About 15 miles up from Kernville, there is a dam or intake for Powerhouse #3 in Kernville. They sometimes take water out , pump it through the mountain and put the water back in down at the powerhouse in Kernville. The flows in this 15 mile section can be lower if they are taking water out. Right now the flows in this section from the Fairview dam downstream are only 560 cfs. Very fun and fishable water in this section. The DFW also stocked this section yesterday for those interested in catching hatchery fish. The section below the powerhouse in Kernville where they are putting water back in is around 1700 cfs. A big difference. Fly anglers have been doing ok on the Tungsten Teddy and various attractor nymphs fished under an indicator. Check out the video below.

Kern River Fly Fishing Report July 8, 2018

Upper Kern River 20 Mile Section (north of Kern River Fly Shop to Johnsondale Bridge) The upper Kern is flowing between 200 to 300CFS. Water temperature is 65 degrees and clear with many wet wading to stay cool in the hot weather. Fly Fishing is excellent at first light and during the evening. Big fish are still moving into the upper river from Lake Isabella in search of cooler water. We are still seeing hatches of Yellow Sallies and Callibaetis Mayflies with trout keying in on smaller imitations like the size 16 Yellow Stimulator and size 20 BWO. Swinging streamers down and across as well as Attractor patterns such as GloBugs, San Juan Worms and Kern Candies are especially productive during the hotter parts of the day. Nymphing Stoneflys, FBPT’s and midges under an indicator is still also very productive.

Here are first time fly fishers Sara and Pat with trout on FBPT
