The East is running at about 95 cfs right now. With the hotter weather we’ve been having (typical August) the fishing has toughened up a bit, it’s definitely good to be down there early and late in the day and try to find something else to do during the middle of the day so the fish don’t get too stressed. There has been some good and not so good mornings and evenings lately with anglers having some success with dries as well as nymphs. Overall the fishing has been fairly tough down there with the more successful anglers reporting just 3 or 4 fish being caught during a 2 or 3 hour session. Usually around the first week in September the weather will start to change and cool down, this should help the fishing get better as we move into the Fall.
