Most likely Mayflies living in Woods Creek Monroe


Indi "Ira" Jones
My class and I read a story about a fictionalized mayfly that lives in Woods Creek near Monroe. Although I've been reading the story for years I honestly have never investigated more what types of mayflies can be found there. Any ideas.
