The East is still flowing at 170 cfs today and has been there for over a week. Fishing is very good down there lately, mainly with small midge patterns but we have also been getting some good reports on streamers and a few good reports on dries. The dry action hasn't been consistent but when it's on it's good. For midge patterns you can go with wd-40's, silver streak, zebra midge, flashback emerger, jb emerger among others. For streamers we've been hearing about zuddlers, zonkers, double bunnies, sculpzillas and for dries go with chubby chernobyl, madam-x, e/c caddis, para adams. The Nevada side has also been fishing well, you'll need to do some bushwacking to get into some of the good holes but it can be worth it.
