    Aquatic insects play a major role in the aquatic ecosystem. They help break down and decompose the dead material at the bottom of the lake such as leaves, dead fish, and other organisms. They are also a major food source for fish, frogs, birds and other animals. There are many types of aquatic insects but the four main orders of insects that interest trout fishermen are Mayflies, Caddisflies, Midges and Stoneflies. The student must be ready and able to differentiate between these insects, in their stages of development and their habitat.

    The book 'Aquatic Insects: Challenges to Populations' thus provides not only a good source of information on a variety of topics, but it is also a thought provoking read and a pointer towards less well covered areas of aquatic entomology. insects is an essential component of fly-fishing, and there is a huge array of books, websites, magazines, and other resources devoted to the topic. This site has a helpful listing of aquatic insects’ common names, and may be of particular interest to those who fly-fish.

    Aquatic insects or water insects live some portion of their life cycle in the water. They feed in the same ways as other insects. Some diving insects, such as predatory diving beetles, can hunt for food underwater where land-living insects cannot compete. Scuds are not insects but small crustaceans, sometimes called freshwater shrimp, and in some streams they are a primary food source for trout. They grow quickly and can survive in a variety of habitats, but they are most prolific and important to trout in slow, weedy spring creeks. Unlike most aquatic insects, they never "hatch" into a dry form.
