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.

Nice photos! Very interesting looking brown trout with the evenly-spaced red spots. The color variations of brown trout never fail to fascinate me. That pool in the top photo is absolutely beautiful!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
