Pteronarcys californica

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

With a bit of help from the microscope, this specimen keys clearly and unsurprisingly to Hydropsyche.
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.

I had tentative plans to go out today for 2-3 days fishing the LJ. I had a doctor appointment early and was going to leave at 11:00. I decided to call Spruce Creek Outfitters and a guy told me the stream is totally blown out and was at 1100 cfs the last time he looked. He also said no Grannoms yet and to give him a call later in the week. Guess I'll be stuck fishing locally this week.

Edit on current cfs flow - 1650

We just may miss them this year, unless it comes down fast. And this evening's storms put it back up. Oh well, can't do much about the weather.
