In conclusion


Mayfly hatches create phenomenal fish-catching opportunities. There are few events in all of bass fishing that are as productive as a mayfly hatch. Understanding that these are rare occurrences though with specific feeding windows better equips you to take advantage of a mayfly hatch once you do find one.

Pick a bait with a good hookup ratio, put it in the middle of the feeding frenzy and get ready. If the bite dies down, rotate through other baits and remember you have the ability to spark an additional feeding frenzy by knocking a few of the resting mayflies into the water. And don’t forget, this time next year you’ll likely find the next generation right where you left the current hatch.
