    I noticed a few questions lately regarding when what bugs should be coming off the water. I thought I'd sticky a post where everyone can post some hatch charts to help everyone out.

    I'll start out by adding this one from Orvis.

    http://www.orvis.com/intro.asp?dir_id=758&subject=254

    I like this one because it lists flies to imitate the bugs. Some of the links are to flies they have for sale but at least there is a picture to help you out. The rest have the recipe for the imitation.

    Hendricksons petering out. Go with BWO (always) Small Black caddis and starting to see some Sulpher Duns. ;) These flies will be good for about two weeks. :p

    Gunrod,
    Like the Orvis sight, the pictures and decriptions are a big help.
    The Gates sight, gotta say I like the Alluminis Flottila pattern, hard to cast...LOL..but maybe a 15wt with a heavy leader....

    Normally Dave but the rains this year have them off slightly. Looks like that might be corrected though. At least let's hope so.

    While I was searching, I found this useful site: http://www.troutnut.com/
    Did'nt see a hatch chart, but I thought it was worth sharing.

    I've been to troutnut before. It's an excellent site for entymology.

    If you're not a fly tier, or don't have the time, try ordering from www.blueflycafe.com. Fly's average under $1.00 each, are good quality, arrive to your home quick, and they always throw in a couple freebies. Fly boxes and other essential trinkets are also available. I do tie all my flies, but sometimes it's easier to order from here, even to just have a quality fly to look at copy.

    Charts are great!!! I had some luck on the upper manistee with Adams Parachutes, 14,16. Could have gone smaller. There were a lot of small white fly's. Does anyone know what specifically they were?
