The Kennedy Meadows Fish Derby

I have anecdotal evidence that two rainbow trout were caught on worms, no less. I didn't catch any on flies. The water is high; screaming meany high on the north fork. And hot. Brother, what a day for swimming, which I did with relish in Brush Creek. I have to say I'm a bit disappointed in the quality of the South Fork of the Kern River. I can't vouch for the wilderness section, which has to be better, but the dry windy cow pasture that is Kennedy Meadows left me cold even in 100 degree heat. At 9200 feet I found snow for my cooler and gazed upon the white visage of Mt. Whitney, our highest mountain in the lower 48. The Warm World is really upon us when you're barely comfortable that high because of heat.
