The East is running at about 140 cfs right now, things haven’t changed too much down there although it seems like the streamer fishing has gotten a little better than it was last week. The weather has been pretty warm compared to a couple weeks ago and the fish seem to be a little more active. Most anglers are still reporting 4 to 6 fish per day, mainly on nymphs and streamers. Still the best time of day to fish is between about 10am and 3pm. 

Recommended Flies:

Zebra midge, flashback emerger, zebra midge, top secret midge, soft emerger, copper John, moal leech, zuddler, sculpzilla, jj special, wooly buggers. 

FYI - The Nevada Department of Wildlife is re-vamping their fishing/hunting license program and will be sending Ken's a computer license terminal in February for our customers to purchase Nevada licenses. During the change over I have been asked to send in all my paper license books on January 1 so they can be reconciled with the department. This means that I will not be able to sell any Nevada licenses for about 4 to 8 weeks after the first of the year. If you're planning a trip to fish Nevada waters during this time be sure to get your license ahead of time, either online or from a Nevada license dealer! I'll keep you posted when my terminal arrives and we're online!
