The East is down to about 390 cfs now, it’s been coming down a little at a time lately and with any luck that trend will continue. The fishing has been pretty good down there for some of the more experienced anglers but still a little tough for some at this flow. As always, one of the keys is to get your flies down near the bottom where the fish are hanging out most of the time. That being said, I did talk to one angler this week who pulled some fish with caddis dries in some very soft water in the late evening. There has been some good streamer action as well as nymphing. We are still getting reports of good numbers of fish in the low to mid 20’s as well as the “Oh my gosh” stories about the fish in the high 20’s that get away. Keep an eye on the flows, I think we’re in for a great Fall.
