Fish:
Golden Trout
Season:
April to November
Additional Details:

The California Department of Fish and Game, Sequoia National Forest and Monument, Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service are working together to restore pure populations of Little Kern golden trout through its native range. Since 1975, 90 miles of stream and 8 lakes have had their non-native trout removed. Eight artificial barriers to upstream trout migration thirty-two erosion control structures have been constructed to facilitate the recovery effort.

Persons visiting the Little Kern River are urged to follow the Leave No Trace Wilderness ethic. Minimize impacts by camping at least 100 feet from streams, lake, and trails. Pack out all materials that you pack in. Body waste is to be buried at least 6 inches deep and 100 feet from river and streams. Keep fires small and leave them DEAD OUT by pouring water on it, and then stirring. Avoid overgrazing of packstock in meadows, excessive trampling and polluting waterways. Little Kern golden trout have been tremendously impacted by introduction of other trout species. Never transport trout in the Golden Trout Wilderness and immediately report any evidence of illegal transporting of fish to the California Department of Fish and Game or the Sequoia National Forest and Monument.

Basic Directions

The Little Kern River is located within the Golden Trout Wilderness on the Sequoia National Forest. Access is the river is primarily via trail.
