The flows on the East are still in the 20 cfs range and the water temperatures are good, averaging in the high 50's and low 60's, the fish are happy, healthy and feisty. Of course the water is thin so you'll need to focus on the deeper pools and runs to be successful. Most anglers are reporting good days both on the "Mile" section as well as the section below the bridge. We haven't had any reports from the Nevada side lately. Some anglers are reporting 30 fish days on the California side. Seems like most of the fish being caught lately are in the 10 to 15 inch range with a few running around 18 or 19 inches. Successful patterns lately include: flashback emergers, zebra midge, rainbow warrior, san juan worm, fox's poopah, z-wing caddis, 3 wire caddis and miracle midge.
