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.

This species was fairly abundant in a February sample of the upper Yakima.
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.

I finally got the time to catch up on processing photos from the past month's several fishing and bug-collecting trips. Go to any of the main non-forum pages of the site (like the homepage) and scroll down the left column to the "Recent Updates" to browse through the new stuff.

Enjoy!

One of my favorite new additions is a photo sequence of an Isonychia nymph emerging along a middle stretch of the Esopus, above the portal.
