Excellent find. Those are definitely it. Another hatch that happens on the Missouri River in my area is a giant gray mayfly. Anyway, I love dry fly fishing with giant dry flies and an eight weight!

When I was living in Ft. Collins, CO. I once found the biggest yellow mayfly I had ever seen on a warm water lake. If memory serves me correct it's the same species. Only saw the one. Some people were doubtful but I also caught lightning bugs there as well. If only cameras where so readily available then.lol
