The flows on the East are still hanging in there at around 105 and have been there for several weeks. The water temps have increased a bit over the last week but the last couple days we've had a little bit of a reprieve with a little bit of cloud cover. The fish still seem to be happy and healthy and so far there is no threat of injuring fish by catching them. Pressure on the river has been overall pretty light. It's best to fish the riffle water below the bridge on Hwy 182 or travel on down to the Nevada side, there seems to be more fish in these sections than there is on the "Miracle Mile" section. There's lots of caddis hatching these days, as well as midges, pmd's and bwo's. Patterns to try include flashback emerger, miracle nymph, zebra, white zebra, copper john, fox's poopah, z-wing caddis, buckskin caddis, san juan worm, chubby chernobyl, madam x, stimulator and dead drift crayfish. The West has been fishing very well this past week with lots of anglers reporting good days with bait, lures and flies. Bait anglers are doing well drifting eggs and crawlers, lure anglers are using panther martins and rooster tails, and fly anglers are using beetles, ants, hoppers, humpy's, elk hair caddis, prince nymphs, zug bugs, hare's ears and copper johns. www.kenssport.com (760) 932-7707
