last year about this time i went to my local river and saw the trout feeding on the surface on small green worms. 1-2mm in diameter and 10-15mm long. i couldnt tell where they were coming from. honestly it looked like i could tie a short piece of bright green ribbing on a hook and catch fish. sorry i don't have a picture but i'm going out this week and i'm hoping to get one. has anyone encountered this?
I have seen nothing more beautiful than the sunrise on a cold stream.

sounds like caterpillars that dropped off of trees. some species go into a wandering phase before they pupate (go into the cocoon phase of their life cycle). I've been seeing black ones lately.
