Not sure, but I took a pic on the way into a local bar along the Susquehanna, June 22nd late at nite. Thought they were yellow drakes everywhere.

How many tails?

Just by the pattern on the bug I'd have guessed hexagenia limbata before yellow drake. Plus in a different thread a New York guy says they're hatchin now.

Number of tails would confirm. 2 = hex. 3 = drake.

Hard to say, after looking at a few more pics I'm goin to say maybe two. They were about an inch long or more in body length.

He said June 22nd. I'd say that's a good potential of a Hex.

I'm saying it's a hex, but won't say it's a limbata, because I don't think they are in the Susquehanna.
