The Kern River has been very good for trout with weekly plants in sections 4 through 6 (above Isabella). This may be the last week of plants. The quality of the planted trout has been fair to good with a lot of two to four-pound class rainbows mixed in with the pan-sized fish. Best bite on the planted trout has been spinners, crickets, and salmon eggs. For fly anglers, the bite is fair to good, especially in the upper river near Johnsondale Bridge for wild fish. Lots of different surface action and hatches now. Flows have dropped to about 200 cfs coming into Isabella and around 500 cfs below the dam. In the lower river trout are spotty, but a few bass and catfish are starting to show as flows make this stretch more fishable.
