KERN RIVER BASIN SNOW PACK 195% OF AVERAGE

Big snow packs mean big run off.  This benefits many forms of recreation.  River rafters and kayakers enjoy a longer than average season.  It is also good for people who enjoy boating on Lake Isabella.  Finally it is good for the farmers down stream and any water user for that matter.

There are also a few downsides as well.  The high water in the river also creates higher than average danger.  A favorite swimming hole which is usually a slow pool might have a fast current this year.  The other big concern is the fact that the Lake Isabella capacity has been limited to 60% in recent years because of structural concerns, and this year it is likely the lake level will exceed that limit.
