Is it true that Trout stocking has resumed in the upper Kern River?

Last I heard (about 1 1/2 months ago) fr a couple of the locals in kernville is that they have been battling to get the stocking back, but it would be months before it could possibly start again.

I was up at the kernville festival last month and they had just restocked the river, but the day the restocking occurred there was a new lawsuit. The group in arizona said the study by the DFG was improperly done and refiled the suit. I dont know what happened after that or if they are still stocking fish.

Why do people in AZ care about Kern River California?

I floated the river above Johnson Dale Bridge one time. What a jewel. Seems like at the put in after a long hike we were in the Golden Trout Area or something. What's the problem with stocking? Competition with the native fish?
Take care

Golden Trout Wilderness Area kicks a**!!!! I hunt there each year. But haven't been able to make it the last 2 seasons. Hopefully, I'll be back this fall!
