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.

As far as I can tell, this species has only previously been reported from one site in Oregon along the Columbia gorge. However, the key characteristics are fairly unmistakable in all except for one minor detail:
— 4 small yellow spots on frons visible in photos
— Narrow occipital spinule row curves forward (but doesn’t quite meet on stem of ecdysial suture, as it's supposed to in this species)
— Short spinules on anterior margin of front legs
— Short rposterior row of blunt spinules on abdominal tergae, rather than elongated spinules dorsally
I caught several of these mature nymphs in the fishless, tiny headwaters of a creek high in the Wenatchee Mountains.
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.
Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

Cool, Kinalia. Do you do much fly fishing?

Great Kinala, great looking flies/baits in your box (I enlarged it a bit to see better). I admire your efforts and your enthusiasm. We love to see photos from our fellow fly fishers, please post whenever you can!

Gorgeous flies and water. Thanks for the photos.

Can I come fish with you? I could make a stop in Iceland, fish with Orm, try to catch Joakim back in Sweden when he returns from his trip to the states, then head on over to Georgia.

Oh, too bad my finances won't actually allow it; still I'd love to, and bet some other Troutnuts would too.

Thank you Kinalia, for your generous offer.

I'm afraid that with my children in school, it actually will be a few years before I travel much to fish, but it is fun to dream, and your photos and posts help with that. I hope you enjoy Jason's website; there is much here to keep us flyfishers thinking.

I just caught the photo of your hand with the wedding band. The wedding band looks very much like mine, which was made in Europe and brought to the United States long ago with one of my wife's ancestors. It is wide and very flat, and has been in my wife's family for many years. I haven't seen many others like it here.

Wow, that looks like some beautiful country and trout water you have over there! Excellent photos of the stonefly nymphs and some very nice imitations as well! You now have a lot of Troutnuts wanting to visit you...

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
