The flow on the East is down to 28 cfs this week. The fishing pressure has been very light with the few anglers we've been talking to reporting having the place to themselves most of the time. Some anglers are reporting up to 15 fish per day with lots of smaller browns and some nice rainbows in the mix. The water is of course very low and there's lots of weeds to contend with but if you put in your time and keep your flies clean you should be able to have some fun. Both the Mile section and the section below the bridge are producing well but we haven't heard anything lately from the Rosachi section. Flies to try include: fox's poopah, buckskin caddis, z wing caddis, san juan worm, rainbow warrior, silver streak, micro mayfly 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. (760) 932-7707
