Still only getting a few reports from the EW each week, it's warmed up a bit but the action has pretty much remained the same. Most anglers are still reporting 2 to 4 fish per day, almost all of which are being caught on small midge patterns. The water bumped up to 37 cfs for a few days but is back down to 22 cfs now. A few things to remember while fishing the EW right now are to try to be very stealthy, with the low water you don't want to spook those fish, also focus mainly on the deeper pools and slots where the fish will be hanging out. The Nevada side of the river still seems to be fishing the best though the section from the bridge to Murphy's Pond is producing a few fish as well. Patterns to be packing down there include, flashback emerger, san juan worm, zebra midge, wd-40, pheasant tail and rainbow warrior. (760) 932-7707
