Here are this week’s images from the water. These images are from Hebgen Lake as we travelled to Yellowstone National Park to fish the Yellowstone River. We hoped to find a few Callibaetis mayflies, and found these insects along the water’s edge.

These are Trico mayfly spinners. The colorful translucence from their wings are impressive. I have to believe the reflections and colors of the wings are triggers for trout. I wonder if it creates some type of spectrum trout key on, perhaps UV?
