Registration is closed
This will be a return to the Kern River which we fished last year as part of a Golden Trout Grand Slam. This year we will start from the east side at Horseshoe Meadows near Lone Pine. We will start on Sunday 8/25, but expect to take about a day to get to the trailhead where we will camp the night before we start. It will take about 2 days to get down to the Kern, having crossed Cottonwood Pass and following Golden Trout Creek down to the Kern. It will take about 2 days to get back out by the same route, giving us 4 or 5 days on the River. While not as difficult as last year's trip, it will still be quite strenuous and require a high level of fitness.
