I will be coming up to Cass on June 4th. I was wondering if the Mayfly hatch has begun or when it is predicted to begin.

Strange But True!? Fished kitchi 20th thru 28th of May......on 24th Mayflies were strong but scattered?????? Shut down EYES in those areas.... I think it was an early hatch...I am told that Cass hatched a few days earlier.... anyone else experience this...

There are no mayflies hatching yet. The flies that Steve saw were what we call fish flies...small and black. I don't think the mayflies will start for another week yet! wink.gif

Hmmmm.....Maybe we got a freak hatch but I have experienced many mayflies before (Lake Erie, Canada, Minn) and these are Mayflies. Not as thick as I usually see(all over the boat etc.) I think an early warm up might have prematurely caused an early batch. Unless the specie that Brian describes are close replicas. Regardless, the fishing was good away from these scattered areas. You guys going up now should do well. Gene, E-Mail me for more info.

These mites that are up here now look like mosquitos,land on you like mosquitos, but do not bite. They have been here since the Texans group was here and are slowly thinning out.

The jogging path between Pike Bay and Cass is a blacktop. I have noticed, for some reason the mayflies show up there first. Probably because they may hatch in the marshy/ swampy area between Pike and Cass where the water warms up ahead of the lakes. I will make a post when I see them, they normally hit the big lakes a few days afterwards.

Not to beat the dead horse but!!!!!!!...........not one landed on us(mites) all emerged from the lake(mayflies)trust me here .....I am not suggesting the mayflies have HATCHED but only that a "scattered pre -hatch had occured" 50 larvae per sq. yd. on the one morning. Can an entemologist chime in here?????????????/

Steve, I believe you bud. They do hatch around the lake at different times and temperatures. With the lake now at 60 degrees plus, in certain place anything is possible. I keep a pretty good calendar on these things, we are about one week away from the beginning of last years hatch.

As long as you enjoy what you do, the years will fly by. My problem now is months seem like weeks, etc. I have been up here for a month and a half. Looking back, I swear it feels like 10 days. Just be careful the last 15 so you can enjoy your retirement. See ya on the water, Ron
