The “Dark Green Drake” or the recurvata species, included in
Litobrancha genus of the Ephemeridae family, is the
largest mayfly in North America. This mayfly is found in the Mid-
west in both lakes and streams with slower moving water.
Normally, fishing this hatch requires that anglers fish after dark
and into the night. They both hatch and deposit their eggs in
the evenings. This one offers the largest meal of any mayfly for
the trout and imitations of it have been known to produce some
huge brown trout.
