This is what they were feeding on at the East Branch Perkiomen tonight. I tried to match with what I had.
I assume its in dun in the Family of Ephemeridae (Mayfly).
Not sure of the Genus Species.
What would you use to simulate this?

Just a guess, is this a member of genus Maccaffertium? Possibly a Gray Fox?

Thats a nice picture Pauly. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

March Brown

Stenonema vicarium, or I believe they and grey foxes are now considered the same and call Stenonema mcafferium.

Yep. I'd say grey fox even though they are now scientifically all one and the same - gf/mb.

Definitely maccafertium genus. I'll also say it's March Brown/Grey Fox.

Slight correction on Chooch's scientific name:

Maccafertium vicarium

Stenenoma is no longer in any way associated with Grey Fox's. The Stenenoma genus still exists, but grey fox's were shown not to belong to this genus. Grey fox's and March Browns have been shown to be merely color variants of the same species, and this species is in the Maccafertium genus.

They've been coming off in Perkasie around 7:30-9pm and mixed in with light cahills. They kinda died off though with this rain and cold front.

March Brown = gray fox. Just color variants of same bug.

Sandfly, your input is needed as a tiebreaker in the "one from last year" thread.

From someone who fishes that stream in Perkasie 3-4 times a week, I can say you absolutely nailed it, spot on.


BTW..thanks Pauly. Appreciate it :)
