Northern Wisconsin has had very few aquatic insect studies conducted in either the lotic or lentic ecosystems within our trout streams. This page is to list past aquatic insect studies I have found that are available to download as PDF files from online reliable sources.
I have focused on the studies that pertain to benthos in the aquatic insect orders of Plecoptera (stoneflies), Tricoptera (caddisflies) and Ephemeroptera (mayflies). There are a few studies that pertain to other families of aquatic insects there are not listed.
Aquatic insects of the Pine-Popple River, Wisconsin
Authors: Hilsenhoff, William LeRoy, 1929-
Aquatic Insects of Wisconsin
Author: William Hilsenhoff
Mayfly Larvae of Wisconsin

Aquatic insects of the Bois Brule River system, Wisconsin

I am including chapter 11 (the aquatic insect section) of the ebook provided by Michigan Tech. It is a wonderful resource because of the aquatic insect photos and since Michigan is a neighboring state with much of the same biotic areas as found in Wisconsin.
