Huge Mayfly Hatch
I was at a local single A baseball game last night. The park is placed on the banks of the mighty Merrimack River here in Lowell, Ma. About the 5 inning, the air filled with a tan #18 Mayfly. I mean it was snowing theses guys. Some fans left after a few innings. They coated everything. In the lights of the stadium it w3as an awesome sight, like a snow storm. Millions of the suckers. Then some big white MAyflys mixed in- about a a size 14. The smaller guys slowed down and finally thinned out while the bigguns picked up. The hatch went on for at least 2hours.
I know what those smallies in the river were eating last night.
As for the game the Lowell Spinners went 16 innings, their longest game and then lost it...doh.
