The flow on the East is down to 21 cfs this week, very low for this time of year but the temperatures are still hanging in there. We were wondering where some of the smaller fish had gone but it seems we may have found out this week! We had several reports of excellent fishing below the bridge on Hwy 182 for lots of fish in the 10 to 15 inch range, several reports of 30 to 50 fish per angler, only a couple big ones but plenty of action!! The Nevada side seemed a little slower with much lower numbers but much larger fish being caught. Patterns that seem to be working the best include: Fox's Poopah, z-wing caddis, san juan worm, miracle midge, rainbow warrior and zebra midge. The West is still a little hit and miss with the low water conditions, it's important to be stealthy so as not to spook the fish. Most of the fish will be hanging out in the deeper pools. Salmon eggs, crawlers and power eggs are doing well, panther martins and rooster tails for lures. Flies to try are elk hair caddis, stimulator, humpy, san juan worm, prince, hare's ear and pheasant tail. www.kenssport.com (760) 932-7707
