The Kings river is sitting lower and lower. This section is where bass boats launch into the river, but the spot they usually go in is about thirty feet from the water. Only the main channel remains.
The water under the bridge is only bout a foot deep. A few carp are swimming through the brush that is growing on what used to be the river bed.
It extends about 150 yards past the bridge. It is barely deep enough to get a kayak through.
I am losing hope that the bass will make it through. This part of the river was around six feet deep when I first arrived in California. Now it is almost bone dry. There was a time I'd be on this river three days a week and now it is hardly worth checking if there is any water left. At least it the central coast rockfish season has opened. Next weekend with good weather I hope to make it out.
