Last night I got chased off the river by the worst bug hatch I've ever seen. They started just before dark, and while it was still light out, all you could see was a yellowish mist over the water. I literally could not see more than about 60 yards. Once it got dark, I couldn't even use the spotlight, and the river was extremely low, so I kinda NEEDED it. It started with stoneflies, but the midges took over quickly. They were so thick you could hear the constant buzzing of their wings, and it was loud too. I couldn't see, couldn't breathe, they were in my eyes, ears and nose. I ended up going back to the boat launch at .001mph faster than the current :wink: I'm sure most everyone who fishes the river at night has come across a hatch like this, I'm just curious what everyone else does to keep them out fishing. What do you do when the bugs are so thick you can hardly breathe??
