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 specimen appears to be of the same species as this one collected in the same spot two months earlier. The identification of both is tentative. This one suffered some physical damage before being photographed, too, so the colors aren't totally natural. I was mostly photographing it to test out some new camera setting idea, which worked really well for a couple of closeups.
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.

A couple of us are looking at an early September fishing trip to one of the two rivers. I don't know much about either and any info would help. We're mainly interested in catching rainbows, but there's nothing wrong with dollies & grayling too. Salmon are of interest only so far as concentrating the others.
Thanks for any info.

Sorry, I can't help, but a group of us are planning on a trip out of Bethel in September 2014. We have looked at PAPABEAR ADVENTURES, TIKCHIK ADVENTURES AND FLOATALASKA. COM. All of these outfitters float those rivers and several others. Are you going guided of unguided? I would appreciate any info you can give me as feedback.
