User Douglas Burke and a friend hike down the Forks of the Kern trail this past weekend. Here are a few photos and a report to check out. Douglas reports,
A buddy of mine and I hiked the Forks of the Kern trail last weekend (Saturday 6/10) for a day hike. As reported, the road to the trailhead was clear of any debris and the trail down to the Little Kern was nearly clear of debris (a little scrambling needed here and there). Both the Little Kern and the Kern rivers were raging as many people have reported and fishing was nearly impossible. We cast a few flies out in slower spots but didn’t get any bites nor did we see any fish. It was gorgeous though and the weather was perfect. I don’t think they’re yet issuing permits for rafting at The Forks so there weren’t many people which made it nice.
Thanks Douglas for the report and photos. I am sure this will help many, especially the photos of both rivers being so high!
