The Skwala Hunt

“A large stonefly that appears in late March on certain rivers of the northern Rockies, the skwala is a bug shrouded in considerable mystery. It receives little mention in angling literature and is even less known to most anglers outside the area.” Charlie Meyers hints at being confounded by the skwala in the Denver Post. Then he writes about how skwala-mania strikes Montanans and others fishing the Bitterroot and nearby rivers. “‘You’ve got to fish the skwala hatch,’ Kerry Gubits had said. ‘It drives trout crazy.'”
