Plan on seeing winter flow releases from here until spring unless we get some significant warm early storms. They will fluctuate from 25-70cfs. Look for the fish to be holding in the deeper pools almost exclusively. The weeds and slime are decreasing in the sections below the first bridge and you will find less traffic here for sure. Streamers are the best bet for a shot at "Frankentrout" this time of year. The Spruce-a-Bu is a deadly pattern during periods of lower light. Nymphing with midge patterns in the 16-20 range, or PT's in the 16-18 will also get grabs. The BWO hatch will give you a small window of opportunity to fish dries this time of year near mid-day. The EW can get frigid this time of year with single digits not uncommon in the mornings after a cold front passes. The EW is currently open year around including the section in Nevada.
