Streamside Observations

With spring here and winters freeze slowly thawing more and more insect life is coming alive. The past few weeks have been fantastic to observe some of the years first bugs. Some little guys some bug guys. Last few weeks Skwalas were seen and adults are hatching on select days. Both the adult and nymph have been captured and fished.
A few Caddis have been seen. Some seem to be the "mothers day" Caddis that is highly anticipated each year. Another is a Caddis that I was not familiar with specifically. Lucky I know a guy who knows a guy that works at a lab ; ) It has been a great tool to better understand the small living things that fish love so much.A cool find was the scuds. Fishing the river one day Spicy Boy (Nick G) pumped a few out.... of quite a few fish. Although this is a picture of what is referred to as a "dead orange scud" there were olive scuds as well. A few pictures were a bit out of focus but you can see that they have a slight hint of olive in some areas.
