Last Monday where I was fishing, the Hex's that were coming off were as long as my little finger.
Shoulda taken a picture

Thanks guys.

Ya the Hex's are starting here too. Saw a few duns in the afternoon and the surface was littered with spent spinners in the evening. Also saw a couple of Callibaetis in one section of the lake. Neat patterning on their wings.

Was at an old, abandoned hydro dam today where they now have a historic park. Took my family for a bbq and as we were touring the ruins, I found a bunch of adult Golden Stoneflies! I quickly dumped my water bottle and stuffed a male and two females in the bottle to take some pictures.

Was able to pry the male off the female this morning and snap some shots of him.
