Thank you.That has to be one of the best hatch charts I've ever seen, and I live in California!
Claassenia sabulosa have an extended emergence period, which runs from early-Jun to mid-Nov, depending on where they are. If the water in your aquarium was warmer than the water from which you collected them, their emergence would be accelerated.I have a question for you also. This spring in May, I was on the lower Sacramento River and I found a dozen Claassenia sabulosa's under some rocks in a very shallow rifle. They were fully mature, and I hatched them out of my aquarium in one week. Why did they hatch May and not in the fall?
The males hide under rocks, etc. by day, and venture out on search of females after dark.And also a guy I know found the giant female and short winged male nymphs under rocks by the shore, not hatching, because it was the middle of the day, but almost as if they were feeding on something. Explain that.
Ha, don't I wish. Age apart, you obviously share my enthusiasm for aquatic insects.Taxon, you are a genius. I just want to tell you that I'm only 14. Thanks again.
Yes, as the largest stonefly, they are a favorite of trout as well.My favorite insect, zee pteronarcys californica.
Thanks. Please PM me with your full name, email address, and the specifics of what you propose doing with my work. I will respond via email to your request.Roger,
What a great resource!
May I have permission to share your work with a couple of new fly fisher's?
I just noticed the hook sizes to the right.
what a good idea and a great chart
