True duns mimic the hatches of smaller Hexagenia mayflies, which occur in marginal Hex habitat. Some lakes and rivers have hatches of diminutive size Hexes. What sets this pattern apart and makes it so effective is the life-like lucent wing made from soft mesh, which unfortunately is somewhat fragile.

Hexagenia Hatch Matcher Flies

Hex hatches offer big trout food. Hexagenia are to our local lakes what salmonflies are to the Deschutes and other Western Rivers. They have the power to bring the largest trout to the surface where they can be caught on dry flies.

Hexagenia are the largest mayflies which occur in the Pacific Northwest. Their nymphs burrow into silt of pure lakes. These hatches occur late June to early August.

There are four stages of this hatch that the angler should be aware of: nymph, emerger, dun and spinner.

Hex nymphs can start leaving their burrows as early as 7:00 in the evening and a nymph fished along the bottom can get some strikes. Major feeding activity at the surface is the last hour at dark.
