The East is still running at about 22 cfs right now, it had bumped up to about 37 for a few days but is now back down. Fortunately the fishing has seemed to be picking up a bit lately! We've had some reports of anglers getting into some fish on the lower section of the Cali side as well as down on the Nevada side. There were a couple anglers who did pretty well below the bridge in Cali fishing barbless spinners, they reported catching fish in the faster riffles as well as the deeper pools. We've also had some good reports on the Nevada side on dry flies and fish down there seem to be hanging out in the riffles as well as the deeper holes too. One angler reported having 15 takes on dries a couple days ago (of course not all of those were landed but still some pretty good action!) The weather has been pretty nice so it might be a great time to get out there and wet a line! Patterns to try include: madam x, stimulator, rubber leg stimulator, skwalla, blue wing olive, flashback emerger, wd 40 and rainbow warrior.
