Pteronarcys californica

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

This species was fairly abundant in a February sample of the upper Yakima.
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.

Finally, some real rain and humidity.
My first good hatch and steadily rising fish this year.

It all took place in a small forest stream.
I was lucky enough to catch some, and one of them was also caught on film.
A friend of mine likes to play around with the camera.

It can be viewed here: http://vimeo.com/41875522

Yep, that river is beautiful. I'm lucky to have it only an hour away, there are rivers closer to home with bigger trout in it. But still, I absolutely love this one.
