Last year they started hatching about the 4th of June on the Hwy 31 causeway just north of Decatur. Over the last several years they have started hatching in that area within a week either way of June 1st.
However, as TroyJ said, a lot depends on water temps and they have been cooler for this time of year. Also, almost everything has been running nearly a month behind what I would consider to be a "normal" schedule ever since last fall. Also, who knows how the recent floods might have affected the hatch, among other things.
In any case, it would not surprise me to see a few small hatches within the next couple of weeks on Wheeler, although I really expect the larger hatches to be a little later this year. Notice that I didn't put any money on my prediction! (grin)
Good luck and good fishin'
