The East is running at 64 cfs today. The fishing down below the bridge on the California side and the Sceirine and Rosachi sections of the Nevada side are still hanging in there. I wouldn't say the fishing is excellent but if you put in some time and effort you should be able to land some nice fish. The main thing right now is that on these three sections the fish are still healthy, fighting well and releasing well. We've still been getting some cooler temperatures at night and some overcast days which is keeping the water temps down a bit so far. Dry/dropper rigs have been the most productive and and we've still been getting a couple good reports on dead drift crayfish. For your dry/dropper rigs try chubby chernobyls, madam x's and hoppers on top with silver streak, rainbow warrior, flashback emerger, dark lord pheasant tail and soft hackle droppers.
