This is the first of it's family I've seen, collected from a tiny, fishless stream in the Cascades. The three species of this genus all live in the Northwest and are predators that primarily eat stonefly nymphs Merritt R.W., Cummins, K.W., and Berg, M.B. (2019).

It's been a long week at work! I'm sure every one of you can relate. To make matters worse, I didn't fish last weekend. So...I am taking a weekend trip to the Bois Brule in search of some steelhead. I have fished this river quite a few times for chrome, but have come up empty. I am hoping for rain this week into weekend. And hopefully the cold weather will have them active. I just want a fish!
Have any of you been up there recently? Or heard any recent reports? My plan at this point is be to the river before sun up and mix it up between fast and slow water until I (hopefully) find fish.
I can't wait. Nothing like the beauty of that river and a couple nights sleep in a car to clear your mind after a long week at work.
