My brother and I hiked over shepherds pass, down the Kern and out through Little Whitney Meadow to Cottonwood several years ago. Fishing along the Kern was very good. The hot tub was cool if you are in the area, but definitely not worth a days hike to see and get in it. That area is definitely off limits to dogs, but if you go south of the bridge just below the Kern Ranger station to Kern lake and maybe Hole in the ground you are in Golden Trout Wilderness and dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, the area was overused and there were quite a few Fly fishermen there on horse back since it is stock friendly. In my limited opinion the fishing and scenery were allot better north of the ranger station around the Funston Meadow and Rattlesnake Creek area.
