Was on my way back from C.P. tonight and when we hit Toledo, just south of the state line, what I thought was exhaust from the big rigs turned out to be huge swarms of mayflys! The exploder looks and smells dead awfull, and we didn't get out of them until we were way up on 275. Anybody out on the big pond tonight, the flies must be brutal to say the least!

Im camping at sterling this weekend i knew those bastards were going to start!:rant: That also may explain why fishing has been so tough the past few days.

The hulls were floating on the water between Belle and Peche Island at 6 pm last night. Must have been an afternoon hatch in the area.

The guys at work said that on Wednesday morning there were black clouds of flies early in the morning, the most that they have seen in years.

Take it from a fly dunker, the flies (at least at Erie Metro) were not mayflies. They were way too small and appeared to be some sort of midge or knat. Plus there were no shucks in the water today.

They were cool to watch all down Jefferson on the way home.
