PHOTOS: Mayflies hatch along Mississippi
Bugs sign of a healthy river
LA CROSSE, Wis. — We had our first big Mayfly hatch of the season Sunday night.
The video shown above was shot in downtown La Crosse.
The hatch was so large you could see it on radar maps. The bugs are harmless and they’re actually a sign of a healthy river because they can only reproduce in areas with high-quality water.
How would you like to get some cash from this ATM? Thanks to Ryan Hollis for sending this picture from La Crescent.
