The East is running at 90 cfs right now and is still fishing pretty well in the mornings and late evenings. We're still getting pretty warm during the day so we're encouraging anglers to fish elsewhere during the heat of the day so as not to stress the fish down there too much. Our night time temps are in the 40's lately so this is helping keep the water temps down a bit. There are some tricos coming off in the mornings but you'll need to get there early to get in on this action, aside from that it's going to be mostly dry/dropper fishing and straight nymphing. In the evening try small caddis dries or nymphs. The Rosachi section has also been fishing well, mostly rainbows with a few browns thrown in down there. Patterns to try: dark lord, san juan worm, zebra midge, flashback emerger, top secret midge, silver streak, rainbow warrior, micro mayfly, fox's poopah, buckskin caddis, lafontaines sparkle pupa, elk hair caddis, e/c caddis, para hopper, stimulator.
