Kern River Fish Report for 9-24-2021
Anglers have been scoring holdovers and natives
by Chad Burton and Chris Borden
The Upper Kern opened fully last week, and the flows have been under 100 CFS. The trout bite is a little slower since there hasn’t been a plant since the end of June. Anglers have been scoring holdovers and natives with minijigs, trout worms, spinners, and salmon eggs. The Lower Kern has had the best fishing the last couple of months. The Bass action is very steady for both Smallmouth and Largemouth on spinners, Get Bent Baits, and soft plastics. Small Catfish can be caught with Triple S Dip Baits, clams, and worms. Bluegill have been coming on live worms. At the time of reporting, the Upper Kern River at Kernville was flowing at 79 CFS and the Lower Kern River was flowing at 113 CFS.
