0000 128287living here OUTDOORS: FISHING AND HUNTINGBy Brett Wilkisonere's proof that fisher- men and hunters haveit good in Tulare Coun- ty. Every season, sports- men from throughoutthe state and aroundthe country flock to local rivers andpublic lands to enjoy what beckonsonly just beyond our backyard. If you are a rod- and- reel type, there are more than a few can't- missdestinations, which should keep youcasting, tracking and calling. FishingWhether you're dipping a dry- flyinto moving waters, wading into abackcountry lake or zinging a jigfrom your bass boat, fishermen haveplenty of waters in the area to suittheir style. Trout fishermen are blessed tohave the Kern River, which graces asliver of southern Tulare Countyand is both a prolific catch- and- release as well as put- and- take fish- ery. The Kaweah River, though pub- licly accessible in fewer spots, isalso a dependable destination tocast for trout. Farther into the mountains, fish- ing is permitted in most parts ofSequoia and Kings Canyon NationalPark, and can be excellent in theadjacent national forest. Local reservoirs, including LakeKaweah east of Exeter, Lake Successeast of Porterville and Bravo Lakenear Woodlake, are popular amongbass fishermen. Trout, crappie, bluegill, carp and catfish also ply thesewaters. The Balch Park ponds, off High- way 190, are stocked with trout anda good place to take young anglers. The season for rivers and back- country lakes runs from late Aprilthrough November and at reser- voirs it's year- round.
