March Brown Mayfly (Rhithrogena morrisoni)
The March Brown mayfly is the first large mayfly hatch of the year. It can be difficult to time the hatch, but overcast skies and low 50's temperature is optimum.
The best action lasts from 1-3 weeks in most places. The traditional March Brown duns originally in the vicarium species are more common toward the beginning of the hatch, while the former-fuscom Gray Fox variety take over in the latter weeks.
While the March Brown is one of the most common Mayfly hatches on many Western rivers, it is not the only mayfly hatch to be aware of. There are numerous species of mayflies of various colors and sizes. A good selection of mayfly imitations will come in handy on any stretch of water.
