Pteronarcys californica

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

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.
Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

I just updated the database to reflect the latest mayfly species changes, thanks to the list Roger aka Taxon kindly put together and posted on various forums. So everything should be shiny and up-to-date. :)

Only two of the affected species, Apobaetis futilis and Epeorus rubidus (which is now a synonym of Epeorus vitreus), have been discussed in the fly fishing literature I've read.
