Mayflies on the Red Deer River
Byron Stearns hit the Red Deer River just after those intense thunderstorms that passed through Central Alberta in the last few days. He walked right into an amazing mayfly hatch. Just before, during and after these storms; it is not unusual to see a significant mayfly hatch. The brown trout were heavily feeding on the mayflies and Byron was able to tag several sizeable Red Deer River browns. Remember to exercise caution when out in "narely" weather! Well done Byron!
