Obviously shot out of the water. Would love to see how they distribute underwater. Seems like a great place for a trout fry to station. Which also suggests why the eggs are so often laid beneath larger substrate out in current. Trout fry and other tiny fry would be relegated to quiet currents near shorelines. Wonder how often these hatching larvae feed sculpins and dace?

Looked like a sci-fi movie gone wrong, LOL.

But I see your point. I can see trout fry wanting to station in areas with these around.

Awww, the little buggers look cute when they hatch. Cool.

I remember watching some rainbow fingerlings and California roach feeding in a small pool.Instead of facing into the current as was usual they were facing the bottom and picking up something there. I got curious and waded out for a couple of small rocks. Washing them off and looking at them under a microscope, I found hundreds of small baetid and caddisfly larvae about 1-2 mm.

Neat how fish can find what's good for them. It's more varied than a lot of people probably suspect.
