We tried to stay hush but the cats out the bag now.
Yes! Christian Bale has been on our Kern River the past 3 days filming his upcoming movie, Backseat. The scene in the movie has him fly fishing in Montana, but he’s actually on our Mighty Kern River. He’s pictured here with legendary and local fly fishing guide Guy Jeans of @kernriverflyshop. Guy is assisting Christian Bale on fly fishing instruction and techniques. Go Guy!
This weekend is the Southern Sierra Fly Fishers California Fly Fishing open benefiting Casting for Recovery Southern California and Projecthealingwatersflyfishing. We will be participating in the tournament as well as having a collaborating booth set up with our partners from California Trout. Don't miss out on this great cause.

Our 2017 Whitewater Rafting Fundraiser was Epic like predicted. Thank you to all the participants that donated to be a part of this charity event and a BIG thank you Luther Stephens and Chris Brown and the entire staff at @whitewatervoyages for putting together the event and giving back to the Kern River. A BIG shout out to Jim from Mt Mesa Market for catering and putting together the delicious food. @kernriverbrewing for donating all those bombers and Kelly Rosvold from @fireballwhisky for keeping everyone hydrated.
What an amazing day we had for our annual river clean up. Over 500 pounds of trash was pulled out of 8 locations along the Lower Kern River. A BIG thank you to all our volunteers who put in work to make this happen and also for our volunteers that drove up from Los Angeles, Ventura, Bakersfield, Visalia and Springville and not to mention a few tourists visiting from Germany who decided to lend a hand and to our very brave firefighters from Engine 46 of @sequoianationalforest for stopping by and joining our volunteers.
The winner of our photo contest is Maria Flores of Bakersfield with this epic sunset photo of the Kern River flowing Into the Bakersfield sunset! Have fun on your whitewater adventure this weekend!
