I noticed on one of the Rattlesnake posts that there were some people using caddis pupa patterns there. This surprised me, as I've only on rare occasion seen caddis flies on a Western Washington lake. Rattlesnake is the only lake where I've seen any caddis on multiple occasions. These, I think, were Longhorned Case Makers (Leptoceridae). They resembled grannoms in superficial appearance and were about #16 in size. Only once have I seen what might have been an adult Northern Case Maker (Limnephilidae). This one was ginger in color and observed at a Puget Sound lowland lake. This one may have been around #14 in size, maybe as large as #12. What I'm wondering is whether others have seen stillwater caddis in any substantial numbers in Western Washington stillwaters. If you have, do you know which caddis they were, what color, what size, and when did you see them? Also, what patterns have people been using when fishing the imitations? --Dave E.
