Just about everything is going to change the color of the bug. How about a good digital camera with a good macro and take a pic with some sort of scale along side the bug for size?

This can be a great hatch, and as you all say they are swimmers, so no need to worry about drag! I've seen them all over the rocks on Abrams, though I thought later in the summer. If Hugh says they're on, I believe him! A prince nymph worked well as does the excellent nymph they stock at LRO, though it might need a little weight.
Plan to get out and get after them over the holiday, hope you all do as well.
Tight lines,
John

mac, you can use iso-alcohol, however, the bug will quickly loose it's color. LRO sells, or can at least obtain for you a product called "bug balm" which is essentially alcohol, but contains some sort of color preserving agents.

When I did my bug research I was a teenager and the rules in the Park were a lot different....I am sure the Park would now frown on removing anything living from the Park...guess you could pick up the spent larva shells from those types of insects...the camera idea would seem to be the best or find you a pocket size directory to carry with you on the stream.

Vodka. Has kept a nice golden stonefly pretty intact for about a year now.

Stonefly, you may have started a new drink craze. Instead of a worm in the bottom of the tequila bottle, we flyfishers can have Vodka with a golden stone in the bottom of the bottle. Just a thought.
