Hex Mayflies
Hexagenia limbata

The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large Brown Trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.

Male Epeorus albertae (Pink Lady) Mayfly Spinner Pictures

This spinner appeared inside our car after a rest stop overlooking the Snake, so that's most likely where it came from. Two different keys place it firmly in Epeorus albertae.

This mayfly was collected from the Snake River in Idaho on August 23rd, 2020 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on September 18th, 2020.
