Golden stones are now the more dominant insect below Maupin. This indicates the hatch is almost half done in this section.
On thursday Golden Stones and Salmon flies were getting much more abundant in the Trout Creek area farther up the Deschutes River Canyon. The Giant Salmon Flies or Black Stones are most abundant now in this section. Golden stones are present as well but in smaller numbers.
