    Thanks Dennis......there must be hundreds of places where those big beautiful mayflies exist.



    Maybe that would explain why small to medium yellow poppers are so popular for panfish?

    I grew up in the Driftless Region of the Upper Midwest. There are 1000's of them all summer long, everywhere. Check any exterior light source. We would "catch" hex by pinching their wings together. Then, bait them on jig hooks for crappies.

    Very small hatches have recently been observed on Lake Pardee. First hand account.

    The Snake in town in Idaho Falls gets a small Hex hatch, we used to have them flying around the RIO offices.

    I remember taking my mom to dinner 25 years ago or so in Folsom. A bunch of hex were on the wall of one of the buildings, and she exclaimed “Oh my gosh, Canadian Soldiers!” She remembered them coming off Lake Erie by the millions when she was a little girl in Cleveland (late 30’s and early 40’s, covering the store fronts and making the streets slick.

    On the flip side, I’ve lived on the north shore of Natoma for five years and haven’t seen one since I’ve lived here. I fished them at Willow Creek in the 80’s and early nineties, but they seem to have disappeared. I’ve walked the bike trail on lots of June and July evenings, not a rise, nada.
