I am not much at identifying bugs. I read about a humungous hatch of these mayflies that closed a bridge over the Susquehana River in South Central PA. (at this point the river is smallmouth water, not trout water) Can anyone identify them for me? Thanks in advance.

Kenny, see the thread entitled, "Epic Mayfly emergence" for the opinions of the gang on here. BTW, smallies take these just like trout do!! On Cooke Pond here on the Au Sable River system, I am told that even walleye will rise to a dry during this hatch!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
