The East is running at 33 cfs right now and since the flow bumped has been fishing pretty well. The "Miracle Mile" section seems to be a bit tough but down below the bridge and on the Nevada side of the border the fishing is pretty good. We haven't had many reports on streamers or dries, nymphing seems to be the way to go. Those fish are liking shiny patterns lately so bring some flashy bugs with you. The water is of course pretty low still so you'll need to focus on the deeper pools and runs to have some good action. Patterns to try include: rainbow warrior, silver streak, flashback emerger, san juan worm, top secret midge, mirrored midge, poxyback baetis and copper john.
