Chironomid Midge Emerger

Midges, also known as Chironomids, are generally fairly small insects in the size #18 to #24 range, but some are good sized bugs, as large as #10. They are found in most rivers in the U.S., and can hatch any time of the year, which makes them very important when other bugs are not hatching. The body color can range from black, brown, olive, tan and the most common being red.

As adults, midges are fish food when they hatch and when they return to the water to mate and lay eggs. Often, adult midges will cluster into a dense ball, which makes a Griffith's Gnat one of the most effective patterns to imitate adult midges.
