What an amazing Hatch !
What day was this ?
Did you get any topwater action? Did you try to match the hatch?

This was on Thursday, September 30.

I have seen hatches like this in this area for 20 years. The shuck trail was still thick a mile downstream.

Unfortunately, the hatch took place in some pecan tree limbs overhanging the water in about six inches of water, too shallow to hold fish. It was not a fishing event.

Sooner or later those Adult Mayflies have to return to the water to lay their eggs. After that the adults die and create a spinner fall on the water. With that many adults on the water it's bound to get the attention of some of the fish.

sweet! Have to go out that way on Monday, may have to bring out some hex nymphs & dries. Still have my dry fly rod set up, though I may have to get the 6x off in favor of 4x.

Thanks for the pics!
