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.

Nymphs of this species were fairly common in late-winter kick net samples from the upper Yakima River. Although I could not find a key to species of Zapada nymphs, a revision of the Nemouridae family by Baumann (1975) includes the following helpful sentence: "2 cervical gills on each side of midline, 1 arising inside and 1 outside of lateral cervical sclerites, usually single and elongate, sometimes constricted but with 3 or 4 branches arising beyond gill base in Zapada cinctipes." This specimen clearly has the branches and is within the range of that species.
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.

Not too shabby. I especially liked the grayling. Thanks.

I agree with Lewis on the Grayling. Where was it caught? I caught my first one ever in Montana this past summer, but it was a dink.

Welcome to Troutnut.

Nice looking fish - looks like some cohos/silvers so I'm pretty sure you caught most of those fish in Alaska. Neat to see the Plueger Medalist. The 1492 was my very first fly reel back around 1961.

Neal,

Where in Maryland are you from? My mom was born near Hutton just outside of Oakland. Garret Co. Caught my biggest ever Bluegill in Deep Creek Lake.
