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.

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.
Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

Spoke to a woman fly fisher who knew what she was talking about and told me that there have already been a few days with blanket Heenies on the river. What do I know I thought yesterday when I saw a few bugs that maybe it was just starting but maybe it is almost over. Not sure - maybe it was just too bright today.

Tomorrow Clarks Creek brookies.

I was on a stream in Md Just south of the border for 2 days this week and still saw a few hennies so I would bet they aren't quite complete in S. Pa.
