The East is still running at around 23 cfs right now and the fishing has seemed to be picking up a bit this past week with the cooler weather. We've had some good reports from the water between the bridge and Murphy's Pond as well as the Nevada side, and even a few good reports from the Miracle Mile section. We're not necessarily hearing about lots of numbers of fish but we're certainly hearing about some very good quality fish, most anglers are reporting catching 2 to 10 fish for a half day with some fish going up to 21 or 22 inches. Dry/dropper rigs, straight nymphing and some streamers are all doing well. Patterns to try include zuddlers, zonkers, double bunnies, sculpzilla, para madam x, chubby chernobyl, stimulator, san juan worm, prince nymph, pheasant tail, tailwater tiny, silver streak, flashback emerger, zebra midge, wd-40, rainbow warrior, dark lord and copper john.
