    Yup. They have an orange body. They're everywhere in NEO. I don't see many in The Willamette Valley.

    I was at a lake recently where those little guys were being blown onto the water. The fish were going ape, to the point where huge browns were putting there noses right up to the tree trunks waiting for them to fall in.
