East River Fishing Report as of August 24th, 2014: Similar to the Gunnison, the East River is fishing well with similar hatches to the Gunnison. Best action will be the public water at the Roaring Judy Fish Hatchery, which sees pressure but is still fishing consistently. Look for pmd mayflies, caddis and terrestrials to produce at various times throughout the day.

Suggested Fly Patterns: Prince Nymph in sizes 10 and 12, Psycho Prince in sizes 12 - 14, Egg Patterns (micro), Zebra Midges, Idyl’s not much midge, Jujubee Baetis Midge, all in sizes 16 & 18. Be ready for midge hatches with the Sierra Dot and Slys midge. Watch for caddis and PMD hatches and fish Elk Hair Caddis and PMD mayflies in sizes 16 and 18.
