    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.
