This section has been fishing really well. The Chester back water and the Fun Farm back water has been very good in the late afternoon until dark. There are clouds of what most people call pseudos. A small beautiful mayfly. This insect’s taxonomy has been reclassified so many times nobody can keep up. Currently it’s Iswaeon anoka, but I am fine just calling them pseudos. They are a size 20 all the way down to size 26. The clouds of these small insects are amazing to watch! There are plenty of fish up eating mouthfuls of these insects. I abdomen is yellow to olive with a rust-colored thorax. This is some of the best dry fly fishing of the fall. No point in being on the water first thing as you will see these insects later in the afternoon going until dark.
