    I may have used steak and M and Ms but the point is the same. More I was refering to the size of bugs that fish will eat but then again quantity as well.

    Numbers aside what about mass? Will midges still "out weigh" the competition?

    Hi Jeff-

    Have now developed a query to display individual lake survey results.
    It is called WA Lakes Biotic Survey.

    That is very useful Taxon, for the fly fisherman at least. Grimes as an example. SCUDS.

    I did not see the sample date for each lake. Would the sampling date change the survey results? Either way, Thank you.

    Jeff-

    In the case of Grimes Lake, all sampling took place on 08/16/2007. For other lakes, sampling also took place during the summer (July, August, or September) of 2007. However, had the sampling taken place during different seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter), I would expect the results to differ based on the sampling date.
