The East had been running at 35 cfs for most of the week but the flow was bumped up to 93 cfs yesterday. The fishing in the lower section and on the Nevada side has been pretty good and the caddis started hatching out a few days ago so there's been some good dry fly action. With the flow now at 93 the nymphing should still be a good way to go, also the crawdads should be on the move now so the potential to have some good action with streamers is getting good. If the flow stays at 93 for a few days I'd expect some fish to move back up into the upper mile so it should pick up there as well. Some patterns to try include dead drift crayfish, zuddler, zonker, moal leech, sculpzilla, silver streak, rainbow warrior, flashback emerger, dark lord, copper john, zebra midge, elk hair caddis, EC caddis, outrigger caddis, black ant, para adams.
