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.

I havnt seen much on european trout on this site. what does it offer just curious. I know thats a broad question but maybe we could go country by country. Thought it could spark some educational an interesting conversation. Like what exactly is a an english chalk stream and does anything like them exist in america or elsewhere. Also are brown trout native to england and ireland or just to germany?
