I'm heading back up to Kern July 2-4. Gonna do some fishing and bag some cotton tails at my rabbit spot. I would like to check out Isabella for some Bowfishing, but I heard most guys use a boat up there.

Ya that lake is pretty deep to wade in, but I think you can along the south fork of the kern. It dumps into the lake.

Yeah we went up and shot a few carp. There was a group of 6 guys and we rented a pontoon. Had a pretty fun weekend. The place was not overrun by trout fisherman like I thought it would be.Going back up for the Tourny in 2 weeks
