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.

This specimen resembled several others of around the same size and perhaps the same species, which were pretty common in my February sample from the upper Yakima. Unfortunately, I misplaced the specimen before I could get it under a microscope for a definitive 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.

We took 7 students up to Pulaski, New York on Saturday to meet up with the Salmon River Stewards. We then split up and covered the entire stream from the estuary to the dam picking up trash. We then took a tour of the fish hatchery. We then stayed at a cabin along Lake Ontario tyed flies for those who had never tried and headed back to Pulaski at 4 am. To make a long story short we landed 3 Salmon fair hooked, 2 of those where kids who had never fly fished before.
