Bugs

The son and I did our nightly stream survey.
The stream beside the house is just teaming with biomass.
Took a few pics of some, mabee you gents that know your bugs could weigh in.

    Hmmm...not really sure. Might guess blue quill, but it'd just be a guess.

    Gary, that top dun one looks like a paralep (blue quill) if its about a #16
    The 2nd dun is hard to make out. If it's two tails and about a 14, maybe quill gordon.
    If it's three tails and 16, probably another paralep.
    You found those nymphs in the riffles. Either march brown, gray fox or some type of bug that will be a cahill.
    Time to put them in your aquarium and then when they hatch, you'll know what it is.

    The worm-like critters appear to be cranefly larvae.
