March 12 at L* lake I observed the samples in the following pictures
Interesting to see green worms as well as bloodworms.
A variety of pupa, some with red butt, others with red lines marking the segments.
Some emerger debris from mid afternoon.
A nymph in one picture.

food followed by my best fly pattern of the day.
"JDC: Jays Diamond Chironomid (red version)"
"black diamond" glass bead: silver lined square hole dark gray glass bead
red thread underbody
red wire
red flashabou or holographic tinsel around the body (optional, red thread is good enough I think)
silver holographic tinsel parallel to the hook placed on the back, wrapped under the red wire.
UV-cure coat of your choice
(I'm currently using Sally Hanson Salon Gel Polish step 3, a UV LED cure nail top coat, it goes on thin)
