This Week's Featured Trout Food - Sulphur Mayfly

A few weeks ago I wrote about the Eastern Pale Evening Dun, a mayfly that is often confused with the
Sulphur. I also pointed out that because common names can mean whatever anyone wants them too, that is
isn't necessarily wrong to call a Eastern Pale Evening Dun a Sulphur Dun but that's usually the case in the
Southeastern part of the nation. The picture below shows the true Sulphur Dun mayfly, or the
Ephemerella
dorothea dorothea.
 This particular one is a female. The males are easily to distinguish from the females.
They have much larger, red tomato colored eyes. This is true of all the Ephemerella  species. Most of the
larger, lower to middle elevation streams in the park have some of these mayflies but they are only plentiful
in isolated areas of the streams. They prefer slow to moderate flows and that's usually the pools of the larger
streams. Both the Eastern Pale Evening Duns and the Sulphur Duns are plentiful in many of our local
tailwaters like the Clinch and South Holston Rivers but both species are called "Sulphurs" by the locals.
