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.

This one pretty clearly keys to Kogotus, but it also looks fairly different from specimens I caught in the same creek about a month later in the year. With only one species of the genus known in Washington, I'm not sure about the answer to this ID.
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.

Not personally...

Seriously, it looks Bluegill-ish and the best way to hold any spiny fish is to get your hand/fingers AHEAD of the spines on the fins and fold them down against the fish's back. Yeah, a 'finning' hurts, too many times to count...

nice pic, too!
