I keep waiting for the summer flow blow out or the conditions to worsen, it just ain't happened yet. The EW is fishing really well and although the immediate section below the dam, "the miracle mile" is heavily fished it remains very productive especially during the morning sessions. The less fished water below the first bridge is also fishing well and has far less traffic especially in the mornings. Dry dropper combos, or indicator tandem nymphing with flashback PT's, olive crystal zebras, copper tigers, broke back tigers, WD-40's, silver streaks( #14-20), are all great nymphs while suspended under a Stimulator or Sofa Pillow (#10-14). There are also ample opportunities to fish caddis, and may fly dries in the morning (#16-18) and late afternoons but you will get larger fish while nymphing currently.

If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website www.sierradriters.com.
