Bombers have arrived

The bomber chironomids are starting to show up on local lakes

We are finally seeing some big chironomid or bomber emergences on area lakes. They are coming off in both shallow and deep water. An emergence can be located by watching the birds such as night hawks, gulls or terns who will all come out to feed on these big bugs. If you see pupal shucks drifting by on the water there is a good chance they are emerging somewhere close by so pull anchor and go for a little tour. These bigger chironomid species come in the same colours as smaller ones. just super size your tying.
