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.

Rhyacophila fuscula (Green Sedge) Caddisfly Larva Pictures

I collected this larva and several like it from the same stream and on the same day as this pupa. I suspect they're the same species.

This caddisfly was collected from the Long Lake Branch of the White River in Wisconsin on June 5th, 2005 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on May 25th, 2006.
