Pteronarcys californica

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

This one was surprisingly straightforward to identify. The lack of a sclerite at the base of the lateral hump narrows the field quite a bit, and the other options followed fairly obvious characteristics to Clostoeca, which only has one species, Clostoeca disjuncta.
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.

So, if I were to finally have occasion to get out and do this, I hear that fishing just after ice out can be productive for landlocks( as I guess, other salmon too). Would swinging streamers fished just subsurface be my best bet or runnin deeper w/ the egg type patterns be the way to go?

Thanks,
