The Giant Dark Green Drake is the Hexagenia rigida species
of the Ephemeridae family. It is very similar to the more
famous
Hexagenia limbata species. It is found in the Mid-
West in slow moving and still waters. We have separate
patterns for it because the
rigida species are smaller in size
and a different color from the “Great Olive-winged Drake". Like
most of the other big drakes this mayfly both hatches and the
spinners fall at night. It can also bring on some large trout for
the angler who likes to fish in the evening.
