Locals report a DFW trout stock this week on upper Kern, but it’s not on DFW plant list. With very light fishing pressure, only a few of these fish have been reported. The fly anglers continue to have fair action on wild fish, with the action progressively better the further upstream you go. Some decent evening caddis hatches. In the lower river flows are very low, but the smallmouth bass have been pretty good on nightcrawlers, plastics and Roostertails. Slow to fair action on catfish and largemouth in the lower river. Information: Kern River Fly Shop 760-376-2040 (or www.kernriverflyfishing.com) or Gateway Market 760-376-2424.

Cool morning, still wearing shorts but had to wear gloves on the kayak. Started fishing as the sun was about to come up but very slow. Caught a couple of Cats halfway between the end of the Democrat Property and the Spillway in 23 ft of water. Water temp was cooler than last week. Caught 1 more cat on the front side of the island and 1 bass, Caught 2 nice bass on the far side of the island drifting worms past the pads in about 5 ft of water. Got real windy a couple of times, then dead calm. Still a nice day! Be sure to check out my videos on Youtube - http://youtu.be/zKhhgeLcG0E
