The East is flowing at 150 cfs today and has been fluctuating a little bit up and down for the last couple weeks. It's been a little tougher to fish lately due to the higher air and water temperatures as well as some significant weed growth in the river. However, we've been getting some cloud cover and thunderstorms lately which have helped out a bit with the temps. Water is still coming out of the dam at about 69 degrees. The fish are still healthy and seem to have plenty of fight in them but are definitely picky when it comes to the flies they are willing to eat, you're going to need to be on your game to get them to take. Patterns we have been having success with include rainbow warrior, zebra midge, WD-40, flashback emerger, tailwater tiny, fox's poopah, swimming caddis, buckskin caddis, E/C caddis, elk hair caddis, para adams. We've also had some pretty good reports from the Rosachi section, fly selections can be the same patterns as above but you can usually size up one size and still get bit.
