They're hatching good now. By this weekend it should be in full swing.

They're still catchable.

The walleyes feed on the emerging mayflies. I would say if you use crawlers, or small jig/minnow combo you may do OK. I'm thinking if taking my wife and son just to fish for fun. Unless I have guide trip. I had a person offer to hire me for pretoury trip.

I was just out fishing on green on Sunday and I saw the mayflies are just starting to show up. I didnt see very many though, like less than a dozen on me. grin.gif But the water bugs and nats are getting to be thick out there. Man on a calm day they sure like them white shirts. :P

And keep those hooks sharp!

The mayflies were pretty thick on Thursday and Friday, but by Saturday and Sunday there were very few flies out there. I don't know if the flies are the reason, but crawlers produced a lot of fish.
