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.

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.

Just wondering if anyone might have any suggestions as to what hatches may be coming off of the rile river this upcoming weekend (sept 18) and what flies they might suggest. Thanks for any input.
