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.

Female Cinygmula (Dark Red Quills) Mayfly Dun Pictures

I'm calling this one Cinygmula just based on the general look and the fact that the genus is very common in this river. Official keys can't rule out other Heptageniidae, though.

This mayfly was collected from the South Fork Snoqualmie River in Washington on June 16th, 2018 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on July 3rd, 2018.
