East River Fishing Report as of March 24th, 2015:

The East River at the Roaring Judy Fish Hatchery is fishing very well right now with all water ice free and good flows. We are seeing midges hatching throughout the warmer part of the day and fish have been feeding actively. Look to the deeper pools for the best holding water and fish nymph rigs under an indicator or dry droppers for best success.
