Pteronarcys californica

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

This Skwala nymph still has a couple months left to go before hatching, but it's still a good representative of its species, which was extremely abundant in my sample for a stonefly of this size. It's obvious why the Yakima is known for its Skwala hatch.
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.

My old trusty Fishin Vehicle got stuck in the snow.



The garage was full so had to park it there last winter.

lenh,

your pics have been gradually working wisconsin into my "to fish" list.
Are these all what's considered the "driftless" region? And how did it come about that name.

Last glaciated period missed the southwestern corner of wisconsin.

It is teaming with rolling hills and beautiful trout streams.
