Spring Conditions


End of Joes Diner on Upper Kern River.

Kern Canyon along Hwy 178
Paddled Limestone on the Upper Kern today. The flow on the Upper was about 1000 cfs, midday temps were around 70, and the water a balmy 40-something. Given the good Spring flow and weather, we were surprised no other paddlers were on this section of the river.

The drive between Kernville and the San Joaquin Valley was exceptionally scenic. Kern Canyon’s steep slopes were as green as they get.
