Blue-winged Olives

Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

Female Baetis (Blue-Winged Olives) Mayfly Dun Pictures

I found this female in the same area as a male with similar markings, probably of the same species.

This mayfly was collected from Mystery Creek #43 in New York on September 19th, 2006 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on October 4th, 2006.
