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.

This one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

Super great video, and nice fish, every one. I'm from CNY, originally. I probably hit a few of those places in my time. My favorite spot was not far from where I lived in Syracuse. A place called Nine Mile Creek. I understand it still fishes quite well.

Thanks for sharing your experience,

Wow! What a great way to remember the season... much better than a shoebox full of pictures in a closet. Thanks for posting that.
