What's the hatch calendar look like in your neck of the woods? I suppose march browns next? Gnats?

Juro,

March Browns, I haven't found in my brook. The typical timing for them here in NE is much later in the season, May/June.

These early stones will continue for quite a while on warmer days. There may also be some midges over the next month/month and a half, but that's about it.

TinMan,
I live out in Wales, MA.

Greg -

Makes me wonder how you fared in the nor'easter? Sounds like you evaded it pretty well?

Juro,

If you call 20 inches of snow evasion, you are correct!!!

That makes your stonefly discovery all the more satisfying to hear! I guess it won't be long now.

Say aren't you near Lake Webster (Chabungamungamaugmaunaugbungamaugamung)? I just *gotta* get one of those bumper stickers!

Webster is about 25 miles east of me. Wales is just west of Holland.

Oh, I see. That's a nice location - quick to the Swift, Wachusett area, down to Rhody for a dose of the brine, etc.

Perhaps you could help a few of us desalinate this spring in some of the central and western Mass streams and stillwaters you know?
