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 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.

first time ever on the Neversink... wow what a river. caught fish mainly on stonefly nymphs, pheasant tail, and hendrickson wet. we had to work pretty hard until about 1 pm when it was like somebody rang the dinner bell and we ended up catching half of them from just 2 pools. my partner caught most of them I got about 7 or 8. Will try to post some underwater pictures he took. the brook trout were large stocked fish I am pretty sure-- you can see the worn fins in one picture
I am haunted by waters
