The East is currently running at about 219 cfs. The weather has cooled down a little since last week, the water temps are fairly high but not high enough to endanger the fish at this time. The fishing is fairly tough but if you get your drifts right you should be able to pull some pretty good fish down there. Nymphing is still the main way to go with caddis patterns and small midge patterns doing the best. We haven’t had any streamer or dry reports this past week at all. There are a lot of crawdads in the water though so it might be a good bet to try some crawdad patterns. The best fishing this time of the year is going to be up until about 11:00 in the morning and after about 5:00 in the evening.
Recommended Flies:
Buckskin caddis, Fox’s poopah, LaFontaine’s deep sparkle pupa, 3 wire caddis, rainbow warrior, san juan worm, flashback emerger, squirmy wormy, WD-40, disco midge, top secret midge, radiation baetis.
