Hex Mayflies
Hexagenia limbata

The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large Brown Trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.

Doroneuria baumanni (Golden Stone) Stonefly Nymph Pictures

I'm not aware of any way to tell the two species of Doroneuria apart as nymphs, so this one is classified to species based on location alone. Doroneuria baumanni is found in the Cascades and in Washington, and the other species is not known here yet.

This stonefly was collected from Swauk Creek in Washington on June 13th, 2022 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on June 14th, 2022.
