Kern River Fish Report for 11-10-2023
The Upper Kern was slated for a trout stocking this week
by Chad Burton and Chris Borden
The Upper Kern was slated for a trout stocking this week in all three sections by DFWL. There are multiple trout plants scheduled throughout the remainder of November. The trout bite has been great for some and slow for others. Anglers have been scoring fish with salmon eggs, nightcrawlers and spinners. The water is cooling off and fly anglers are doing best along the 20-mile stretch with midges, streamers and attractor nymphs, and dry-dropper as the afternoon warms up. The Lower Kern River continues to have a solid bass bite on crankbaits, jigs, and spinners. Catfish can be found on dip baits, nightcrawlers and cut baits. At the time of reporting, the Upper Kern River was flowing at 497 CFS and the Lower Kern River was flowing at 2102 CFS.
