The East is still running at about 95 cfs right now. We’re still getting some pretty good reports from anglers who are fishing early in the mornings and late in the evenings with some 23”+ fish also being reported. The more successful angelrs are reporting 5 or 6 fish for their time down there. There’s still been a little dry action here and there, mainly in the evenings. Nymphing is still the best bet, unless you’re on the water when the fish start looking up. The weather is still pretty hot so it’s best to stay off the water during the heat of the day. We’re still looking forward to the weather getting cooler and when that happens the fishing should get better and better.
