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 have fished a couple of different stretches of the Esopus this year.Could you tell me what stretch of the creek these pictures are from?The clarity of the water tells me it is somewhere above the Shandaken tunnel.

Thanks for the quick reply.I was actually on this stretch this summer,but the water was so much lower,much too low,in fact.I ended up going to a spot on the other side of Rt 28 above Big Indian.Water was low,but fishable there.Got 2 small brookies,so I will go back,next week as a matter of fact.I will explore that area around and above Oliveria next spring.Fished another tributary stream a couple weeks ago,Woodland Valley Creek,down stream of here,just above Phoenecia.Small stream,should be nice in the spring.
