Skwala season is here and with it will be folks from all over the country to fish this spring stonefly. You can’t blame anyone for wanting to get out and enjoy the spring weather and this great hatch. The skwala hatch is very unique in that it is a large bug (#10) but the fishing can be actually technical. Most people associate stonefly hatches with the golden and salmon fly hatches where the water is up and the fish feed with reckless abandon. Not the case for the skwala. The water is typically low in the spring and the pressure is high, making bug selection and presentation very critical.
