Default Bugs, flies, and other insects

Being relatively new to Alaska I'm wondering what bugs, flies, and other insects are on the menu for the fish of Alaska?

I have searched the interwebs, just not getting any useful info. Probably due to my lack of knowledge of anything to due with the science of bugs and such. I also realize that we have a thread for patterns that work well, but I think a list of what's here would be helpful for people like me. Ones that like to study, and make our own patterns of locally available "fish food". It would also help us be able to identify what we are seeing, and make more intelligent choices towards what to tie on next, other than running back to the fly shop. I don't know if it would also be helpful or necessary to break it down by regions, if there are many differences.

Obviously there are mosquitos, gnats, and no-see-ums. Beyond that I'm lost.
