Adult Midge Information Continued:
The adults become important to anglers when they are mating and depositing their eggs. They mate
in swarming masses. It is common to see fish rising and midges skittering along the surface of the
water at the same time in just about any water that holds trout. Most adult species skim the surface of
the water when they deposit their eggs. It is not uncommon on some waters to see large clusters of
midges along the shoreline and trout rising to them. This occurs during the time the midges are
mating. At times the current and wind can collect them along the banks and in current seems in large
clusters. This will usually concentrate the trout and cause a feeding frenzy.
