In the photo he sent I'd say they look like about #18.
If the mayfly in the photo is a size 18 its unlikely the species is in the trico family. Even the larger trico's on large western streams like Big Mo' and the Bighorn River don't reach size 18 they are usually size 20.

Re: Stream Conditions

Fished a popular stream South of I-90 Friday and Saturday. Did real well both days caught trout from 5 to 18 inches both days. Trout are definitely on the feed finally. All trout taken were on beadhead jig hook flies. Fish were taken on a variety of different nymph patterns that I tie for myself, ma...

Re: tiny mayflies

I doubt their Trico's I've never heard of it coming off anywhere this early let alone in northern Minnesota. There is a small mayfly species that came off on Trout Run a few years back that I've never seen before or since. I wish I could remember the name of that mayfly, it might be the one you are ...

Re: How mntu habitat improvement projects are completed

The article WGH is talking about is in this newsletter! http://mntu.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/June-2019-MNTU-Newsletter-Final-small.pdf Unfortunately many of the MNTU projects have little if any decent in-stream habitat elements that are worthwhile. By in-stream habitat elements I mean creating...

Re: mayflies

Cam, "Generally" the majority of mayflies emerge during day light hours. The mayflies you saw close to dark are likely mayfly spinners. The large brown mayfly could be Brown Drakes( just an assumption) or possibly even March Brown mayflies. During this time of year there really isn't any other mayfl...

Re: Happy Fathers Day

No kidding. I was gonna head down there this afternoon for a couple of days, but last night's rain wrecked those plans. The trend of increasing rainfall is certainly in line with the Laws of Physics in a warming atmosphere. With our SE water tables at near record high levels it does not take much r...

Re: Happy Fathers Day

Same to you, TaG! Have good day anyway.

This unpredictable crappy weather is getting to be a pain the butt, its really messed up most of our spring fishing season and hatches! Hopefully, the summer season will straighten things out on stream?

Re: Fishing Report- June 11

I don't know how they can verify whether brook trout in our area are the native strain, the original strain of brook trout to our area were called the Mississippi Valley Strain. The last I knew the DNR and U of M people never found a DNA sample of the original MV strain brook trout to compare to the...
