No, they hatch all night and into the early morning hours.

I've been up there two of the last three weekends and have not seen any. Last year late May they were everywhere. Late b/c of the wet, cool spring?

I saw a few at my camp on First Fork above Costello last weekend. No fish were paying any attention. No spinnerfall either.

Unrelated to the drakes, how far above Costello are you? If headed from Costello along the 1st Fork, we have a camp about 1/4 mile before the road to Prouty.

I like to drive up Cross Fork to Abbott, then over to Costello. How many people can say they've been to Abbott & Costello?

I caught a 22 inch trout once of a Green Drake comparadun. I couldn't help but cut it up the gut and transect the stomach. Or maybe I suctioned it-- but in either event it had 16 Green drakes in its digestive tract. Seemed to me there were 4 nymphs, 2 partial nymphs and 10 duns. Just sayin'

Please don't just leave us hanging like that Jack.
Were the Green Drakes stocked or wild?
