See what Luther Stephens of Kern River Outfitters says about the 2011 whitewater rafting season on the Kern:
"We're expecting a VERY long season with great water flows. The period around the peak (probably the first two weeks of June), will be a little tricky, but it will all be worth the long balance of great water as the peak subsides.How sweet is that?
"We've put off our Forks trips until June 20th, but other than that, we should be able to run the Upper Kern through the first two weeks of August and the Lower Kern through the month of September."
Having enjoyed trips down the Kern with Kern River Outfitters, I can personally attest to the great time you’ll experience. And if you’re a fisherman, take a fishing rod. The trout action ain’t bad on the Kern, either.
