I was out on the river the other day and trout were clearly rising but I couldn't see to what. I would assume that it was some sort of midge hatching just because those were the only bugs I saw the whole time I was down there, and a zebra midge was the only thing I caught anything with. I guess I was wondering how to figure out what the hatch is when there aren't many bugs around but they are clearly rising to something. Is there maybe some sort of generic emerger, one that looks like nothing in particular?

BWO hatch. An RS2 and Adams are good generic mayfly imitations.

I find myself fishing a film critic almost every time there is a hatch. Many times I will fish a 2 fly rig with an adams or other dry up front and a film critic as a trailer. In that scenario, the film critic usually outfishes the other fly with 2-4x more fish caught. I will play with size and color a bit, but I have caught fish on them when they wouldn't take anything else. You can get them at the Driftless Angler, or if you want a lesson in frustration, you can look them up on youtube and attempt to tie them yourself.
