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.

Female Rhithrogena virilis Mayfly Dun Pictures

I'm guessing this one is Rhithrogena virilis based on collection of a male spinner of similar size and body configuration during the same trip.

This mayfly was collected from the South Fork Snoqualmie River in Washington on June 16th, 2018 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on June 23rd, 2018.
