Pteronarcys californica

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

With a bit of help from the microscope, this specimen keys clearly and unsurprisingly to Hydropsyche.
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.

Anyone know of a good hatch chart (available online) for the Housatonic River in CT? I've found a few, but they're not really up to par. Thanks.

i don't put much stock in hatch charts, but as hatch charts go, this is as reliable as any. it's a good guide to what you can expect in a typical season. I used to fish there quite a bit back in the 90's and they had great hendrickson and caddis hatches in spring. I also recall heavy sulphur and in late season, white fly hatches. hope this helps http://www.fishdoodle.com/housatonicriver.html
