This Skwala nymph still has a couple months left to go before hatching, but it's still a good representative of its species, which was extremely abundant in my sample for a stonefly of this size. It's obvious why the Yakima is known for its Skwala hatch.

Thanks Mike. I'd been toying with going up to north western Maine to fish the Maggalloway and Rapid rivers. Both pretty much the last bastion of really big wild brook trout in the US. Mid May is prime time, just after ME ice out. But mid May is prime dry fly time on the Delaware and none of my close friends were willing to give up one week to go off to Maine.
