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.

I caught this tiny larva without a case, but it seems to key pretty clearly to to Glossosomatidae. From there, the lack of sclerites on the mesonotum points to either Glossosoma or Anagapetus. Although it's difficult to see in a 2D image from the microscope, it's pretty clear in the live 3D view that the pronotum is only excised about 1/3 of its length to accommodate the forecoxa, not 2/3, which points to Glossosoma at Couplet 5 of the Key to Genera of Glossosomatidae Larvae.
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.

The weather has finally changed for the better here in New Brunswick! It's been sunny on the Miramichi with highs in the twenties all this week. The river is at a good level with clear, beautiful water. It is still high enough that all the fishing has to be done out of boats. Boats with guides & their guests are going up and down the river, so we know there are lots of fish around. The salmon are taking on the top with smaller flies and there are quite a few larger trout being taken as well.
