The East is running at about 350 cfs right now and has still been fishing pretty well. It's mainly been a nymphing thing with caddis nymphs and small midge patterns mostly doing the trick. One of the keys down there right now is to switch up your bugs often. We've been getting a couple good reports (though just here and there) on streamers and dries, but it's mainly been nymphs. Some of the patterns that have been working include: wd-40, zebra midge, flashback emerger, silver streak, micro mayfly, san juan worm, fox poopah, lafontain's caddis pupa, 3-wire caddis, weir's caddis. Haven't heard much from the Rosachi lately, but will let you know when we do!
