Silver Creek Brown Drakes

Yesterday's Brown Drakes go like this; the kind of wind that makes eyes tear and spring-green tall grass blowing around like millions of cheering fans and crepuscular nighthawks whooping overhead and then like the hatching of something not visible came tens of thousands of Brown Drakes. It was cold too. Almost no prairie caddis and not a mosquito to be found. Look for the bugs to continue over the next 3 to 5 nights.

A headlamp spotlights Brown Drakes drifting down Silver Creek last night.
