The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

Female Dicosmoecus gilvipes (October Caddis) Caddisfly Adult Pictures

I've been hoping to add a really good October Caddis to the photo collection here for years, but so far I had struck out on finding them on the river. Tonight, this one flew into the kitchen during a pizza party at a house along the river, and was quickly pointed out -- one of the perks of hanging out with other aquatic biologists! Maybe next year I can finally get a salmonfly on taco night or something.

This caddisfly was collected from the South Fork Snoqualmie River in Washington on September 29th, 2017 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on September 29th, 2017.
