Classic 107 - Winnipeg's classical and jazz radio station.

There aren't many mosquitoes in Winnipeg but there are plenty of fish flies in Gimli.

Winnipegger Katie Madziak was camping there over the weekend. She says they were basically everywhere.

 

 

She says for a moment she wasn't sure she could go through with it, but she got passed it.

 

 

Jordan Bannerman, an instructor in the Entomology department at the University of Manitoba, says fish flies emerge from the water every July for mating. He says they head to shore in whatever direction the wind is blowing them and they look for any surface they can grab onto, where they molt and then return to the water, where they mate. He says fish flies pose no risk, and they don't even have mouth parts.
