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.

As far as I can tell, this species has only previously been reported from one site in Oregon along the Columbia gorge. However, the key characteristics are fairly unmistakable in all except for one minor detail:
— 4 small yellow spots on frons visible in photos
— Narrow occipital spinule row curves forward (but doesn’t quite meet on stem of ecdysial suture, as it's supposed to in this species)
— Short spinules on anterior margin of front legs
— Short rposterior row of blunt spinules on abdominal tergae, rather than elongated spinules dorsally
I caught several of these mature nymphs in the fishless, tiny headwaters of a creek high in the Wenatchee Mountains.
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.

Good Friends!
I need to know since(as,like) I can ask for authorization to use the images of entomology that estan in this page.
Since I am preparing chats of sports fishing and environmental education to give in the schools children from 5 to 12 years of age.
Thank you!

Jason (Troutnut) would be the one to ask. This is his site. Send him a personal message so he won't miss the question. You can do this by clicking on his alias (Troutnut) in a thread. See the one below entitled "A bit off topic: Introducing Taiga the puppy!" You'll see the reply notice when there's a blinking orange envelope in the upper right hand side of the page. Then click on "my home" and you'll see "Latest Private Messages Received." I don't think he'll mind, but you'll have to ask him to be sure.

Thank you Friend!
I believe that it(he,she) is of estimating his(her,your) generosity!
When it(he,she) has images of the activities they are going to be sent the pupils will be very interested in being able to enjoy the classes of entomoligia and environmental education thanks to his(her,your) contribution!!!!!
Any consultation on the fishing in the south of the Argentine patagonia does not hesitate to do it, here I will offer to him(her) my help!

I love these online translators. Better than comedy.

Shawn -

Is that what that is? Hilarious! Not you Mayfly the translator!
