Living at the place of many waters
We came across these on the top portions of submerged rocks in the Dayton area on the Touchet this morning. This one is small at 3/4", some were up to 1 3/4" I think. Had 6? dark legs to hold on to rocks in the semi-swift water. They were everywhere. The lower sides and undersides of the rocks had the brown cone type, 1/2" with green worms, which I think are the Brachycentridae, (Grannom), but I couldn't ID these big guys. Should have taken one apart but at least I know what to imitate outside. Thx, just always curious about this stuff. Gold ribbed hares ear did fine, even though I didn't have any big enough. Some were 6 3xl long I bet.
