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.

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.

Mayfly Species Distribution Maps are now available for each mayfly species which has been recorded in a USA state or CAN province. This an extension of my ongoing efforts to provide a comprehensive referenced record of mayfly species geographic distribution by USA state and CAN province.

WOW Roger, extremely impressive. Man, Hexagenia limbata sure has a wide distribution! I saved this to my Favorites in case I need to ID mayflies for consulting work (I wish). Thanks!

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

Hi Dave,

Thanks. My intent is to do the same kind state/province mapping for caddisfly distribution.

Hi Mack-

Although I appreciate the sincerity of your opinion, I am certainly not deserving of it. Please say no more about it, as you are embarrassing me something awful. :-)
