The East is hanging in there at 68 cfs today. We've had some pretty cool nights this past week, 2 nights were below freezing. This is helping out the temps on the river quite a bit. We're still just mainly fishing it in the mornings and late evenings and trying to give it a rest during the heat of the day.

The tricos are still coming off a bit in the morning if it's not too cold, then it's caddis and midges for the rest of the morning and the evening. The Nevada side is also fishing well, dry/dropper rigs have been good as well as a dead drift crayfish and straight nymphing.

Patterns to try include drowned trico, top secret midge, flashback emerger, silver streak, rainbow warrior, copper john, para hopper, stimulator, elk hair caddis, e/c caddis, fox's poopah, buckskin caddis lafontaines sparkle pupa.
