The East is running at about 363 cfs right now, this flow tends to make it a bit more difficult to fish and wade but there are still some anglers doing pretty well down there. Of course the main objective with a flow like this is to add enough weight to your rig to get it down to the bottom where the fish are hanging out. Larger weights and larger indicators are going to be what it takes. If you can get your flies down to the bottom and get a good drift you should be able to have some success. The Nevada side, both private and public, have been still doing well with this higher flow also. Nymphing is still the number one way to go with streamer fishing coming second.

Recommended Flies:
Rubberlegs, rainbow warrior, silver streak, micro stone, poxyback stone, Darth baetis, pheasant tail, dark lord, radiation baetis, prince nymphs, san juan worm, zebra midge, top secret midge, flashback emerger,  sculpzilla, peanut envy, dali lama, zuddler, double bunny, dead drift crayfish.
