The storied history of the Kern River is really a tale of two rivers. The first, the North Fork, originates in the high Sierra Nevada near Mt.Whitney, plunges through the Inyo and Sequoia national forests and cuts deep into the granite outcroppings that make up the Kern River Canyon. In the spring, snowmelt turns this stretch above the old goldmining town of Kernville into a fast-moving torrent that’s considered one of the most popular whitewater rafting runs in the state. The second, the South Fork, is a freeflowing river that winds through open meadows and provides habitat for a native species of golden 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.
