Took these samples from a recent trip to Bayley lake in Stevens Co. Any thoughts on what was in them?Screenshot_20220531-081343_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20220524-054841_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20220523-122631_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20220523-121837_Gallery.jpg

The photos are rather fuzzy but a couple of them appear to be mayfly nymphs.
It's also hard to tell on the first picture but could they be eggs from a 'pseudo spawn'?

The bottom ones are mosquito larvae. Check out google images for mosquito larvae.
Second from top looks like some kind of leeches.

That makes sense.. other than a few midges the only other bugs were mosquitoes.. have taken samples with these larvae from fish caught in the upper ponds ar Rocky Ford..
