Detailed Description:

East River Fishing Report as of December 6th, 2014: Similar to the Gunnison, the East River still has large amounts of open water and although the USGS guages are ice affected and not reading does not mean that the river is unfishable. Pleasant days at or above 40 degrees have allowed the water to stay open and fishable. Fishing at the Roaring Judy fish hatchery has been producing good numbers of fish and crowds are almost non existant.

Suggested Fly Patterns: RS2s in gray and black in sizes 20-22, Two-Bit Hookers in red and light brown sizes 14 - 16, King prince in sizes 12-16, Hot Belly Pheasant Tails in sizes 16-18, San Juan Worms, Cream/Olive Zebra Midges in sizes 18-22.
