Baetis

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.

27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

definitely a limnephilid and probably not neophylax. the case is not right and the head and pronotum aren't right. first guess would be limnephilus but can't really see the characters.
