Bass Lake Fishing Derby The Derby will provide a lot of fun for the entire family and, hopefully, a lucky fisherman will catch all or one of the special grand prize fish. Bass Lake, one of the most picturesque lakes in California, is located one hour northeast of Fresno, just off Highway 41.

Kern River Fish Hatchery Have the kids ever seen a real live fish hatchery? The original Kern River Fish Hatchery was built in 1928 by the Kern County Fish and Protective Game Association. It is located in Kernville (about 5 miles from our Rafting Center). The Visitor Center also offers a wide variety of free brochures produced by both the California Department of Fish & Game and the US Forest Service. Information includes: Fish & Wildlife of California; Sequoia National Forest camping & hiking areas; and lists of local birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, mammals and butterflies.
