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.

I fished the south branch of the Ausable river Tuesday, water is still high and cold, but I managed. Not much was going on in the morning, I tried the euro nymphing rig but couldn't get much going. As I worked a different stretch of stream, caddis started to emerge, and then also some hendricksons. the caddis were like snow blowing up the river, it was really cool! I could have watched that all day long, as it was I got lucky and this spot had a 6 or 7 fish rising, I got 3 decent browns on a x2 caddis. These fish were really spooky and it took a lot of cast and just watching, which was great! I have some pics but have to see how they look on line.

Adirman, no im sorry im lacking in my bug identification, im working on that though! I will try and make a effort to capture some bugs next time, I need some sort of net to carry with me as I have pretty poor luck trying to get them by hand or my hat.

I ran into a huge caddis swarm in northern WI at the end of the Hendricksons hatching. I caught several and sent photos to a MI aquatic entomologist. It is believed to be Glossosoma spp.. Little Gray Sedge. The small female caddis had a huge green egg sack. I have the specimens in a vile to get positive ID made when I have time.
