    Interesting, but there seems to still be some controversy as to whether the Yellow Sally actually does emerge in open water. Ralph Cutter, a very astute observer, is convinced that such reports are instances of ovipositing females being mistakenly identified as emergers.

    Nice Salmonfly man! There hatching here too on the Lower Sacramento River. My grandpa caught one about the same size a couple days ago.
