Cicada year

I just read that this year will be the first cicada year in the eastern US since 1987. I guess there are periodic hatches around every 17 years. They will swarm soon and all die in June and stink the place up as they rot. States I heard about were NY, Ohio and Kentucky. Is this a hatch opportunity for catching some fish?

I was trout fishing in PA a couple of weeks ago and lot's of people were talking about it. Apparently the fish tune in to them
when they start falling. The flies to imitate them are outrageous...big orange and black spun deerhair patterns.

Must be something else to see a big brown come up and slurp one on top!

Thumbs up

There is an article in the July issue of Fly Fisherman about Cicadas, including a very interesting pattern. The fishing on the Green River with Cicadas can border on being insane.
