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

This specimen keys pretty easily to Onocosmoecus, and it closely resembles a specimen from Alaska which caddis expert Dave Ruiter recognized as this genus. As with that specimen, the only species in the genus documented in this area is Onocosmoecus unicolor, but Dave suggested for that specimen that there might be multiple not-yet-distinguished species under the unicolor umbrella and it would be best to stick with the genus-level ID. I'm doing the same for this one.
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.

hello troutnut! i was just wondering where exactly these amazing pictures were taken of the rondout creek. i have a house in fleischmanns NY and always cross a bridge over the rondout creek, but have never found time to try and fish it. I would love to know where this deep pool is and/or how to get there because it is simply beautiful. also where was the fifth picture taken from? it looks like there are some very nice pockets that seem promising for some trout to be chilling in. thank you!

It is beautiful.
Best advice, grab your stuff to fish and start walking.

Hey Clix711,

The photos were taken right by one of the roads. I forget which one. The water looked good but I didn't see any sign of any trout.
