Still sorta new to fly fishin' and would like to know if their is
any kind of website for the bugs in New Mexico?
I've seen site for the Gunnison River in Colorado, and there is Westfly whichcovers the Northwest States.
Was courious if anyone could point me in the direction of a decient site
to help me identify some bugs that will help me catch some trouts.
Thanks for your consideration.

Hi Hank,

Listing the "bugs of New Mexico" would be a rather daunting task. So, how about if I simply start by listing the New Mexico mayfly genera (including common names) which are likely to be of some interest to a fly fisher:

Family - Genus - Common Name
Ameletidae - Ameletus - Brown Dun
Baetidae - Acentrella - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Baetis - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Baetodes - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Callibaetis - Speckle-wing
Baetidae - Camelobaetidius - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Centroptilum - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Cloeodes - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Fallceon - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Labiobaetis - Bluewinged Olive
Caenidae - Caenis - Bluewinged Olive
Ephemerellidae - Attenella - Small Buuewinged Olive
Ephemerellidae - Drunella - Slatewinged Olive/Western Green Drake
Ephemerellidae - Ephemerella - Pale Morning Dun
Ephemerellidae - Serratella - Small Western Dark Hendrickson
Ephemerellidae - Timpanoga - Great Bluewinged Red Quill
Ephemeridae - Ephemera - Brown Drake
Ephemeridae - Hexagenia - Big Yellow May
Heptageniidae - Cinygmula - Dark Red Quill
Heptageniidae - Epeorus - Pink Lady/Slate Brown Dun
Heptageniidae - Heptagenia - Pale Evening Dun
Heptageniidae - Leucrocuta - Pale Evening Dun
Heptageniidae - Rhithrogena - Western March Brown
Isonychiidae - Isonychia - Great Western Leadwing
Leptohyphidae - Tricoryhyphes - Trico

Every area/state is going to have a huge disparity in the type of water you will fish, or the river you will fish...spring creek vs. freestone river, high Mt small stream vs. lower elevation big river.
