BIG fish, upper Kern
Jul 19th, 2006, 8:11am
 
This is a great time to be at the Kern River! The flows have been getting better every day and I've been getting a lot of big fish. I've been fishing alone so I haven't been able to get pictures of some of the fish. You guys should be up here to help!
 
Got out yesterday afternoon and got this beauty:
 

 
To give you an idea of the size, my net opening is 8" X 16". This fish was over 24" and I estimate the weight to be close to 9 lbs. With that big square tail it made some screaming runs, almost to my backing when it got it's head pointed downstream. When I released her in the calmer water she turned toward me as if to say "Thanks" and then "See Ya" as she turned and headed back into the river. If you happen to catch this one, say Hi to her for me.  Smiley
