    Well thanks for the info. I'll probably forget it as soon as I log off of here. I figure as long as they are in America they should use what we all studied and learned in our youth. I'm way to old and set in my ways to try to learn something new. So thanks again.

    Skwala. Way to early for Salmonflies. OBTW, both Skwalas and Salmonflies are Stoneflies.

    A friend emailed me a pic recently of a salmonfly he found. Probably a week or week and a half ago. Obviously it hatched at the wrong time, but that does happen. I'll see if I can find it.

    Here it is:

    I see some red or orange on that bug. Skwalas have a light greenish coloring on them. My guess is Salmonfly

    This weekend I was driving up a river road and encountered a Salmonfly hatch in full force. (I got out and caught one to make sure.) In full force. Dozens and dozens of them flying around. When i start fishing streams wither the end of may or the beginning of June, it's not unusual to see a (very) occasional Salmonfly and a couple-few Goldens. Basically coming in at the very tail end of their adult life. Seeings as that is ~6 weeks away, it looks like the stone hatches are definitely early this year.
