This smallmouth river was very low during a July drought, but I floated it with my dad in a canoe anyway, and we landed several nice smallies.  The weather was too hot for good trout fishing. From the West Fork of the Chippewa River in Wisconsin.

On-stream insect photos from the West Fork of the Chippewa River

Often mayflies can be found on houses near the river.  This one molted from a dun into a spinner on the outside of our kitchen window.

Any lit dwelling near the river can attract a lot of mayflies at night.  A good way to determine what's hatching is to visit a gas station (or anything else with bright lights) close to the river early in the morning. From the West Fork of the Chippewa River in Wisconsin.

Closeup insects from the West Fork of the Chippewa River

Female Ephemerellidae (Hendricksons, Sulphurs, PMDs, BWOs) Mayfly SpinnerFemale Ephemerellidae (Hendricksons, Sulphurs, PMDs, BWOs) Mayfly Spinner View 7 PicturesThis Ephemerellidae spinner was emerging unusually late, and on a warm stream. Since it's a female, identification is difficult. Her identical coloration suggests she's probably of the same species as this specimen collected on a cool trout stream almost a month earlier.
