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 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.
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.

Happy 4th of July to Jason, your Dad and all you PA guys!! I am looking forward to being off a computer and FF'ing for a couple of days on one of my favorite streams (which I am sure Jason can guess.)

Someday I hope to get a chance to fish those legendary PA streams I have read about since I was a kid years ago. (Although I cannot imagine the fishing pressure you guys must have today. (I guess we are still spoiled in the Upper Midwest.)

Happy 4th!

Enjoy the ------ River! :) Hopefully it's not too warm for a little action.
