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.
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.

There will be a FFAA (Fly Fishers Anglers Association) meeting on December 2nd, at 7PM at the Whitestown Vets Club in Yorkville, NY. I will be doing a slide show on "A Year of Fishing in Central New York" which will show the plentiful fishing opportunities that we have here in Central New York. Try and make it if you live close! If anyone is interested in attending, PM me for directions or any questions you may have.
