The East is running at around 37 cfs right now and though there hasn't been much traffic down there lately we have had a couple of encouraging reports. The cooler weather we've been having the last several days have kept the water temps down to under 70 and the fish are still very healthy. We had a couple good reports from the "Miracle Mile" section, it sounds like there's some very nice rainbows hanging out in the deeper slots and pools in that section. Not too much news on the browns, sounds like they might be being a bit more shy than the rainbows. The Nevada side is still producing some nice fish as well. It's probably best to get out early and only fish until 10 or 11 in the am to give the fish a break as the heat of the day wears on. Patterns to try include: fox's poopah, buckskin caddis, 3 wire caddis, lafontains sparkle pupa, dark lord, hare's ear, chubby chernobyl, fat albert and madam x.
