Pteronarcys californica

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

This specimen keys pretty easily to Onocosmoecus, and it closely resembles a specimen from Alaska which caddis expert Dave Ruiter recognized as this genus. As with that specimen, the only species in the genus documented in this area is Onocosmoecus unicolor, but Dave suggested for that specimen that there might be multiple not-yet-distinguished species under the unicolor umbrella and it would be best to stick with the genus-level ID. I'm doing the same for this one.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

I say hellow from Winfield, British Columbia, Canada. Check me out on 'googleearth.com' I enjoy and have at my fingertips at least a dozen moutian lakes that at times land for a, gentlefisherman, 3-5(5.74) lbs. and 20-22 inch in length, and approximatley, 9.5-10' in diameter. I am here to learn what I can that; will keep me more at peace with nature, and try to nurture her at the same time. I am so ready willing and able to ensure that my son, Konnor, will have glorious adventures, stories and friends and family in the moutainous areas whereever he may live. It is up to all of us to do the right thing for the up and coming generations. Thank-you for listening and glad to be member!!

Darn, is there a way to edit a post folks??? I have some spelling errors to fix. A friendly thank-you to the person(s) that, hopefully, will help me fix this minor situation. Any feedback would be certainly positive and helpful.

In the upper right hand corner of the text block a pair of scissors should appear, this is your "edit" button. On subsequent posts, both both the scissors and a garbage can appear; the can is the "delete" button....


Eventually, all things merge into one...and a river runs through it.
