The East is still running at about 230 cfs right now. We’ve had some good reports and some slower reports this week. The weather hasn’t cooled down as much as it should have by this time of the year, the mornings are cold but the days are still hot. We got a couple really good reports from the lower section of the river, down below the bridge this week which was nice. It’s still mainly nymphing, the streamer action still hasn’t taken off too much but it should be soon. A couple of the reports we received were from anglers who had 20 to 30 fish days, mostly smaller fish in the 12 to 16 inch range but a few in the 16 to 20 range thrown in. The way the river is right now, there’s good opportunity to get into some good numbers of fish as well as some good quality fish if you get your drifts right and your bugs down near the bottom.
