Pteronarcys californica

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

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.

The second picture in the series with Slope Mtn and the Pipeline in the background is actually Oksrukuyik Creek, not the Kuparuk River.

Thanks, you're right. I moved it into a new section for Oksrukuyik Creek.

I drive quite a bit between Prudhoe and Pump Station 4. I fish quite a bit between Pumps 3 & 4 and fished that stretch of the Oksukuyik a few times.
