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 was surprisingly straightforward to identify. The lack of a sclerite at the base of the lateral hump narrows the field quite a bit, and the other options followed fairly obvious characteristics to Clostoeca, which only has one species, Clostoeca disjuncta.
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.

Hey everyone. I am new to Hood River, OR. I know there is great fishing here (one of the main reasons I'm here), and would love to meet some of you who fish the Hood, Deschutes, John Day and Sandy rivers. Take it easy.
Fishing is not a matter of life or death. It's more important.

Welcome to the forum, JonT. Sorry for the delayed greeting. You weren't being dissed - it's just that few of our regular contributors hail from that country at this point. I don't live in the area, though I've fished the Deschutes quite a bit. Do you have any questions?
