- April to November
Rattlesnake Creek is a tributary to the North Fork of the Kern River, above the confluence with the Little Kern River. Access to is from the Rattlesnake Trail (33E32). This trail is steep and rocky making access difficult, especially in the summer when temperatures reach over 100º Fahrenheit in the lower parts. Access to the stream for fishing is also difficult because of the thick riparian vegetation along the stream.
