The trout action was has stayed fair to good on inflated nightcrawlers, PowerBait, and small jigs, at the main dam and auxiliary dam. DFW trout plant this week. The catfish are also pretty fair in the South Fork, and the best bite has been on meal worms dipped in Tomatillo sauce, but the usual cut and paste baits also work. A few crappie continue to show up in the South Fork, mostly on live minnows, but getting four or five is a pretty good day. Most are a pound to two pounds. Bass are also slow. The lake level is around 59 percent of full pool. The Kern River flow was at 6,600 cfs going in with an outflow of 5,300 cfs. Reports are that the snowpack is holding 2 1/2–times the capacity of Isabella, and outflows may ramp up to 7,500 cfs at times this year.
