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.

I only caught a couple of these, and they were both females, so I'm not sure I'll be able to identify it any further.

This mayfly was collected from Devil's Creek in Wisconsin on June 14th, 2021 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on June 21st, 2021.
