The East has been bumped up to about 454 cfs this week. This flow makes things pretty tough down there but we have still been getting some reports of some nice fish being caught. There is certainly nothing automatic about having success down there with this flow but if you can get your flies down to the bottom where the fish are feeding you should still be able to catch some fish. Most of the successful anglers we’ve talked to are getting into from maybe 1 to 5 fish per day. It seems like the most productive area is the upper mile between the dam and the bridge as this water is a bit more angler friendly than the lower stretch. There seems to have been an increase in streamer action with the higher flow and for nymphing you should be able to size up a size or two on your bugs, 14’s, 16’s and 18’s instead of just 18’s and 20’s.

Recommended Flies:
Dead drift crayfish, sculpzilla, double bunny, moal leech, zuddler, Hell razor craw, prince, pheasant tail, rainbow warrior, rainbow assassin, wd-40, flashback emerger, San Juan worm, squirmy wormy, silver streak.
