Caenis

When the important hatches of Tricorythodes were first discovered by anglers Caenis was given the credit. We now know that the Caenis mayflies are a different group, smaller and less common in trout streams, and they hatch in the evening instead of the morning. They very rarely elicit selective feeding, but when they do they're very tough to match because they're often much smaller than size 28. This difficulty has earned them the nickname "Angler's Curse”. Most Caenis mayflies emerge in the evenings when other, larger mayflies are abundant on the water. This limits their importance.Caenis mayflies typically emerge, molt into spinners, mate, and oviposit within one hour.
