In Search Of Gold…Kern River drainage of the Southern Sierra Nevada’s

Frenzy, Reports, Stories


There is one elusive trout on my list of fish to catch that I have yet to check off my list. It is only found in its pure native state in two locations around the world. One is the Wind Rivers in WY and the other is the Kern River drainage of the Southern Sierra Nevada’s. I thought, since my older brother just moved to Bakersfield, CA which lays at the base of the Sierra’s, I could try my hand at these beautiful Golden Trout and spend some quailty time with my Bro, Sis and Brother in-law. The trip was awesome. We ended up not being able to catch a pure Golden Trout (didn’t have enough time to hike in 15 miles to the Golden Trout Wilderness), but we were able to fish the upper Kern River and catch Native Kern River Rainbows which are a mix between Goldens and Rainbows even though the river was running at 3,000 cfs (normally 500 cfs) Check out the pics

Travis vs Wild– I only brought a sleeping bag, fishing stuff, and Zingers!!! Pine needles never felt so good and the rock blocked the rain pretty good. Dodgers Game
