Welcome Jon! Nice to see another troutnut from the west coast. Balances out all of us here with an east coast bias.

Thanks for the welcome Eric. Been getting some much needed rain on the west coast, soon as the Lower Yuba clears I'm out there. Skwala stones are getting ready to pop!

Hello Jon, Welcome to Troutnut.com. This is a great site if you are interested in entomology in order to enhance your fly fishing success or if you just happen to enjoy studying those insects. I'm sure we would all enjoy hearing about your adventures in Northern California and some fish porn is very welcome too!

Thanks Wbranch, I'm a nutcase when it comes to aquatics, Studying the bugs sometimes is more important to me than the actual fishing. Not trying to get more exposure or "sell" by any means, but you can always check in on my blog which I update on a weekly basis.

I wish there were more guys like you so there would be fewer people on the rivers I fish!

Thanks Jason, this site is absolutely the best. You have a special mayfly listed on here that we have in a small tributary of the South Fork Yuba, Drunella Pelosa. I've only found a few nymphs, and have no idea what the adult looks like. There is not much info on the net about this bug, except yours.

Roger, Thank you!

Jon,

Welcome aboard. Like you I visited this site for quite sometime before I even noticed there was a blog...I haven't shut up since! ;) Ok. No noise from the peanut gallery! :)

For the most part we are well behaved...When we act up Jason puts us in "Time Out".

I'm not all that familiar with your part of the country. Maybe you could tells us about it. Looks nice.

Oh, welcome Jon--and if Feathers5 identifies any bugs for you--get a second opinion.

Spence, Feather55, Martinif, Thanks for the welcome.
In Spence's request about the land that I'm from I'll tell you this. There is so much water here that it is staggering to say the least. You could not fish all of it in your lifetime, it’ just not possible. In Northern California we have some major rivers like the Sacramento, Feather, Truckee, Yuba, And the American. Each one of these rivers has branches, especially the Feather and the Yuba. Each of these branches and the main river has hundreds of tributaries that flow into them, all fishable, all holding wild trout. The Northern Sierra is an awesome land, clean granite, and lush green coniferous forests, littered with wild beasts, and critters beyond belief. Yeah, there is a big population here but many do not appreciate the wilderness, and with that, solitude and willing fish to the dry fly is always available. Wild flowers beyond belief, super hatches, and adventure is a common thing for those that look. As a native Northern Californian, I take real pride in this land and what it can share with us, and what it can teach. It is an awesome part of this place we call earth.

As far as bug Identification and behavior, I have found this philosophy to be true. Never put rules, limits, and timing on Mother Nature. She’ll hand you your ass and break all the rules, not some of the time, but all of the time. Every day is different, and those anglers who can adapt and change, lead a more successful trip on the water. – J.

Sounds like a great place for me to visit with my wife and stay a couple of weeks to fish some of those rivers. What is a good airport to fly into so I wouldn't have to drive more than 100 miles to some town I could base out of?

Sounds nice Jon...Kurt has tried to get me out that way from time to time. Maybe someday...I remember reading Randal Kaufmann's stories about fishing alpine lakes up in the rockies...

Thanks for sharing.

Wbranch,

Fly into Reno, Nv. The big Truckee river is right there and continues all the way upstream to the town of Truckee with miles of water to fish. The Little Truckee is 45 minutes away. Lake Davis, one hour. The Middle Fork Feather, a little over an hour. Pyramid Lake 45 minutes. North Fork Yuba, 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Like I said there is so much water here to fish, to explore, and the hatches are out of this world at times.

I don't know how I missed this! Welcome, Jon. Nice to have another native Californian aboard.
