Blue-winged Olives
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 one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
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.

I'm heading up to the Tully tomorrow for sure and Sunday too if I have reasonable success on Saturday. I like the water from Rebers Bridge up to the dam. I drive a silver Subaru Legacy wagon. PM me if anyone is interested in hooking up.

P.S. I heard the reverse Tricos are falling!

OK Matt, it's Monday, how did you do? We're ready for a fishing report!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
