Caddis are prolific in all Western trout streams.  All caddis go through a larval stage.  There are several different life styles.  Some build portable houses made from gravel or vegetable matter.  Others build nets.  Still other roam the bottom freely. All types are available as trout food items at certain times. As usual there will be much discussion on how and where to fish these patterns as well as the best tackle to use.
