Fall goes to about December (almost) on this creek, thanks to the moderating influence of its spring-fed origin. When the BWO's have petered out on the Yak, there's still a few weeks of daily activity to look forward to out here.

The female are divers and deposits their eggs on the bottom. Take note again, that a Soft Hackle can imitate either the Pupa or the egg...... Read More
