East Lake is very warm for getting the stamp of approval of being a good/safe place for C&R fishing. If you are going to fish at East, go dawn to about 10 or 11 am for your best bet, and 7 pm to dark as another time to focus. Mid day that water is getting up to 70-71 and you especially want to avoid the bank lines, the cliffs and rocky shores because that riparian zone is a heater. Look for cooler water in the deep. Wind Drift a type 3 or 5 out in 35 feet with a leech and a flashback PT or callibaetis nymph. Fish a Chironomid deep in 16 to 19 feet under an indicator.
