The East is running at about 830 cfs right now, it’s been at that flow for several days now. There’s a lot of snow melting off the mountain and the streams going into the Reservoir are at their banks each day. We haven’t talked to anyone who’s actually fished the river since it started running at 830, we have talked to a few anglers who went down to check it out and decided it was just too much water for them. If anyone was intent on giving it a try I would suggest first of all being extremely careful with any wading as the flow is very strong right now, as far as flies go I’d suggest large streamers with lots of fur and motion to them, double bunnies, zuddlers, zonkers, sculpzilla. Add sufficient weight to get them down as fast as possible, gear up to 1X, 2X and 3X tippets and hang on!
