Anyone fish the Kern yet? I'll be going out there in two weeks and was wondering what flies I should use or try. I am a noob to the sport of fly fishing. I was thinking on using a salmon egg fly since I did really well on real salmon eggs with a spin rod.

I am heading up there this weekend. I dont fly-fish, I just use powerbait up there. A lot of guys fly-fish there though. What part are you going to? We always go to upper kern

I started fly fishing once but got tired of rolling the sh-t into little balls and putting them on the tiny fly hooks.

The river is roaring right now with the highest flows that I've seen in 18 years of living here
