FISHING

Regulations: This segment of the Kern River between Lake Isabella and the Johnsondale Bridge is open year around. The daily bag limit is 5 fish, with a possession limit of 10. Check regulations at the California Department of Fish and Game website. Access to the river area is from Mountain Highway 99 above Kernville. This part of the North Fork Kern River is stocked by the California Department of Fish and Game with introduced rainbow trout year-round and there are also self-sustaining populations of this fish species present. The river just above Isabella also has an established population of introduced smallmouth bass.

Anglers will find a wide variety of fishing opportunities ranging from large rivers, to small creeks, to Lake Isabella. In all, the Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument has more than 700 miles of fishable streams containing trout.

Portions of the Kings, Tule, and Kern Rivers flow through deep canyons as they cross the Forest, but don't overlook our numerous smaller creeks that also provide fishing opportunities. The Forest and Monument provide cold water angling for rainbow trout, brown trout, and eastern brook trout. The spectacular golden trout also reside in streams on the Kern Plateau.

Lake Isabella is a 17 square mile reservoir that provides both warm and cold water fisheries for a multitude of fish species. The reservoir is a popular destination for anglers seeking largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, sunfish, catfish, rainbow trout, and has even been stocked with Chinook salmon.

Anglers 16 years and older must have a fishing license (except for Free Fishing Days). Always check California Department of Fish and Game regulations prior to fishing.


HUNTING

Hunting is allowed on Forest Service land inside Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument. All hunters must be licensed with the California Department of Fish and Game and also possess a license tag when hunting deer and other big game.

A few things for hunters and others to know:

  • California does not have a blaze orange law. But if you will be hiking during hunting season (typically during the fall months) please consider wearing something bright orange for safety! Also, staying on trails or on roads and hiking with a partner are wise decisions.
  • Hunting is not allowed in neighboring Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. Make sure you have a good map of the area!
  • It is illegal to shoot from a road, across a road, across a body of water, within 150 yards of a campground or other structure or occupied area, or if endangering any person or property.
  • Hunting and shooting hours are from one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset (exception: upland game bird hunting ends at sunset)
  • Deer meat cannot be wasted - report an incident if you see deer being abandoned or dumped. Hunters cannot sell the game they shoot.
  • Baiting is illegal (i.e. laying salt blocks; leaving food stations, etc.)
  • If you are camping outside a developed campground you will be required to have a campfire permit in order to have a campfire or charcoal BBQ. They can be picked up free of charge from any Forest Service, California Department of Forestry (CDF), or Bureau of Land Management (BLM) office.

We are directly across the road from a beach access point on the North Fork of the Kern River. Please note that the narrow valley that has steep, rocky hillsides. The North Fork Kern River has many large boulders, cold water, and swift currents. The hazardous rapids and powerful currents make this river dangerous during normal flow, so swimming in the river and floating on water toys and inner tubes can have tragic results. Children should always be closely supervised near the river to keep them safe. This area can become hot in the summer (100º F.), but it cools down quickly at night.
