Macro Images Of A Morphing PMD On Silver Creek

With just over a week to go until the opener, a few of us have been seining Silver Creek and taking a closer look at where the brown drakes might be in their maturity. While we have observed no brown drake nymphs with dark wing cases (meaning more mature) we have seen many damselfly nymphs and scuds.

At the same time, Callibaetis, Baetis, and PMD’s have been regularly emerging in the afternoons and the fish have been on them up and down the Creek, from downstream of the Picabo Bridge, through Point of Rocks and The Willows all the way through The Nature Conservancy.
