Skwala fishing in trout country is like breathing for most other people. You just gotta do it.
Preparation begins in the fall for the fly fishing dream time.
The Skwala is a sub-species of stonefly that hatches early in the spring. This is like bypassing the salad and going to the main course on the trout buffet.
Skwala hatch as early as March in western Montana and as early as Janaury in parts of California which means that you may be on or in the water with snow still pelting you in the face. Whether late or early, one thing is for sure, you don’t want to miss out on the fun.
Stream fishing is like nothing else in the world and if you want to take it to the next level, though in a trout. Fishing the Skwala hatch is like the Olympics on a scale of 1 to 10.
