I am privileged to know that first stretch of 10 miles of river like the back of my hand. After decades of backpacking the Forks of the Kern Trail to get to the hallowed waters of the Upper Kern River.  After 10s of thousands of fly fishing casts in the Upper Kern.  After testing hundreds of flies.  I have developed extensive and detailed guidance (backpacking and fly fishing) and directions on how to successfully do the Forks with the sole intention of helping people out.

I have blogged about many of the experiences i have had at the Forks.  And that ultimately meant I was getting overwhelmed with email, txting and phone calls for support.  So, this is an efficient way to take care of everyone that needs the guidance and directions.

Also included is my most recent backpacking list for the Forks of the Kern.  For the fly fisherman that backpacks forgetting something can be crushing.

All proceeds I collect from selling this $5 guidance document is donated to CalTrout, a great organization that does great things for the trout habitat of California.

  1. Hamthis

    This is directions to his camp spot and how to drive to the trailhead. There is no information for flyfishing this location. I’m sure his camping spot is really great. But that is not what I was looking for.

    Priceless knowledge from a seasoned vet.

    I’ve only just started getting curious about fly fishing, and this guide is perfect for beginners interested in the Forks of the Kern or just learning more about how an expert would approach a trip. Just started reading and it’s so much better to have inside knowledge like this, rather than relying on generic blog posts on magazine websites.

    Thanks Tim!
