    Hi Peyton00-

    I believe it to be a the Fishfly, Dysmicoherhes disjunctus:

    To my knowledge, we don't have any Dobsonflies in WA, but we do have Fishflies, which are in the same family (Corydalidae) as Dobsonflies. However, whereas the Dobsonflies are in subfamily (Corydalinae), the Fishflies are in subfamily (Chauliodinae).

    I believe it's a Fishfly to. Look at the larvae for a Fishfly, they look exactly like Hellgrammites!
