Isabella Lake Professional Review and Guide
"With the hard-flowing Kern River pumping in for most of the year, Isabella Lake is often colder than most lakes Central California anglers are used to. Those cool flows and fast-moving water can put a serious damper on the bass fishing, according to Pete Cormier of Bob’s Bait Bucket. So when the bass bite cools off, Cormier and other local anglers switch to crappie and trout. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping."
