Hex Mayfly Hatch

I’ve noticed our local lake has been having some large Hexagenia mayfly hatches lately. I am going to have to hang around after dark and see what happens when they start dropping on the water.

First camping trip of 2015 – Milford Lake Kansas

A couple of weekends ago I finally got around to taking the first camping trip of the year. The weather this spring has not co-operated with my scheduled days off. It seems as every time I have a weekend off it has been dumping rain with 40 mph winds or the temps were dropping into…
