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.

My parafoam flies wouldn't exist without paraloops. I was prepping to tie them and didn't have the right size mono. Dug through my materials for a substitute and the light bulb went on to try foam. Now they're all I fish.
If you ever want to fish just give me a shout!
Heres a little something from a couple nights ago on the Pigeon...

You guys crack me up!
I'm doing an experiment right now to see how long various bugs will float after being spent. This particular bug is one of my floaters. Its abdomen is now a granny smith apple green. When I first captured it, the abdomen was kind of a forest green/peacock herl green.
