The East is running at 43 cfs right now, the water temperatures are still hanging in there and the fish are still very healthy. Water temps are in the high 60's thanks to the cooler summer temperatures we've been having so far this season, hopefully that will last for another 3 or 4 weeks then we'll be over the hump and the weather overall should start cooling down going into Fall. There seems to be a bunch of nice rainbows in the upper mile of the river right now, I'd guess they've been coming out of the reservoir periodically and are now hanging out in some of the deeper holes in the mile. Anglers who have been doing the best on both the upper and lower sections in California and the Nevada section have been using san juan worms, buckskin caddis, fox's poopah, lafontaine's sparkle pupa, swimming caddis, mercury midge, rainbow warrior, zebra midge, dark lord, copper john, madam x, stimulator, fat albert and chubby chernobyl.
