Midges

Midge is a term commonly applied to small Chironomids and Dipterans that trout feed on. They are a very important source of food for trout and can make up anywhere from 50% to 90% of a trout's diet in lakes. They are sometimes called gnats and look similar to mosquitoes but do not bite. Midges have two wings that lie in a flat “V” shape over the back when at rest.
