March 19 Chapter Meeting:
"Aquatic Insects of Small Streams"
By Matthew Greene


Come find out which aquatic insects inhabit small streams that you fish. More importantly, you will see live insects, get a brief introduction to aquatic insect habitats, and learn about the habitat-fishing decision relationship.   The featured speaker will be Matthew Greene.

Matt studies how reservoirs influence the biodiversity, population dynamics, and life histories of aquatic insects that live in tailwater rivers. As a master's student at North Carolina State University, he is currently studying how the South Holston Reservoir influences the development, generational cycle, and population dynamics of the sulphur mayfly,  Ephemerella invaria. Matt is broadly interested in EPT taxonomy, the evolution of aquatic insects and their divergence patterns, and what drives productivity in tailwater rivers. When not conducting research, he can be found scouting out newly discovered trout water in the mountains of North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia or casting dry flies and floating nymphs to selective trout.

This should be a great meeting.  I have talked with Matthew and his work on the SOHO tailwater is way overdue.  From his research, he will be able to answer some of those burning questions about those darned SOHO yellow critters.  I am as excited as a dog in a hubcap factory over what he will eventually tell us.

John, send me some directions – directions that a hillbilly, without a GPS, TomTom, or whatever, could follow using a paper map.  Also highlight places to eat– sustenance is a requirement.

Many thanks.

Take notes Mud. Hopefully the topic won't be too far over your head.  :-*

It was informative for sure, but i felt like it was over a lot of folks head.  If you didnt already have a grasp on entomology then he definitely used some terms that were a tad technical for guys that mostly fish buggers on dh waters.  Interesting stuff on nymphing hellgrammites for smallmouth by jigging the fly.  He also suggested 'dancing' midge patterns in the slick water.  He was also a proponent Of extended body sulphur nymphs, but that would take forever to tie especially when most micro mays catch ayou lot of trout as it is.

What did he say about the cohorts/broods of the yellow "bugs" on the SOHO?
