The East is flowing at about 500 cfs right now, it’s still a bit high for most anglers but the fishing is definitely getting better! There have been lots of nice rainbows and some really nice browns being caught down there. It seems as though the upper mile is doing the best, the lower stretch will undoubtedly pick up as the flows come down a bit more. We’ve had some good reports from anglers getting into 15 or 20 fish per day, mostly nymphing with a few fish being caught on streamers with some fish up to 24 or 25 inches being caught. The river has had a tough go over the last decade with all the drought years it has gone through, whenever possible please practice catch and release down there so it will have a better chance to get back to its old self! Flies to try include: dark lord, san juan worm, zebra midge, darth baetis, micro mayfly, flashback emerger, zuddler and sculpzilla.
