Truckee River - Mays for Days

Flows are still pretty good above and below town @ 170 cfs, it won't last forever, so fish while the fishin's good.  Today was a first in a while, a hatch I couldn't match, at least not exactly.  I think they were Mahogany Duns (rust colored thorax and abdomen) and lots of them, a pretty large mayfly (#14) that I never fish because I think the river's normally high or blown out when they hatch so I normally switch to coppers and stones in April/May.  They didn't outnumber the baetis, but I'd bet they contributed to more calories overall and fish were totally zoned in on them.
