Location | Middle Section of the Provo River | Buffalo Midge 2023
The buffalo midge is one of the most unique early season hatches our local tailwaters offer. The buffalo midge is very large in comparison to other midge flies. When the pupa emerges, it has a hump on its back resembling the silhouette of a buffalo. The abundance of these flies in and on the water drive the trout into a frenzy, bringing them out of their winter slumber. Buffalo midges come in a variety of colors with the most common being black.
