Winter Stoneflies


Lots of bugs on the Big Wood these days.  Rained hard last night with a strong wind event and it is now about 20.  Think ice.  Otherwise it's warming and fishing really well.  The three images above are of small winter stoneflies we get on the Wood starting around the end of February.    They are called neumoras.  The last image is to give you an idea of scale.  They are small.  Smaller than many of the super abundant midges crawling around on the snowy banks.
