Quick stop on the Green River

By Troutnut on September 9th, 2020
I had some errands down near the Green, so I stopped on the way back at Flaming Geyser State Park to wet a line. There was some nice-looking water, but I wasn't catching much until near the end of the day. I left early in the evening, not wanting to take my chances with the "high theft area -- do not leave valuables in your car" warning signs at the parking lot.

On-stream insect photos by Troutnut from Silver Creek in Idaho

Female Baetid spinners were abundant subsurface looking for substrates to lay their eggs, and they found my waders. I'll update the ID for this picture after identifying the associated male spinner. I caught several fish on a small brown soft-hackle fished as a crude imitation of these spinners before the fish all started taking Tricorythodes spinners instead.  In this picture: Mayfly Species Baetis tricaudatus (Blue-Winged Olive). From Silver Creek in Idaho.

Closeup insects by Troutnut from Silver Creek in Idaho

Male Baetis tricaudatus (Blue-Winged Olive) Mayfly SpinnerMale Baetis tricaudatus (Blue-Winged Olive) Mayfly Spinner View 12 PicturesSome notes from identifying this specimen under the microscope:

1. The hind wing has three longitudinal veins (Longitudinal vein: Longitudinal veins are the major long veins running length-wise through an insect's wing, connecting the base to the outer margin, or the major branches from those veins.), but the third is faint, short (about half the length of the wing), and close to the wing margin.
2. Then antenna is brown fading into white at the tip, and the base is ringed with white.
3. The joints of the tarsal segments on the middle and hind leg have fine black markings.

It was also collected in association with a female spinner.

Female Baetis tricaudatus (Blue-Winged Olive) Mayfly SpinnerFemale Baetis tricaudatus (Blue-Winged Olive) Mayfly Spinner View 5 PicturesThis female spinner was deceased when photographed, so the posture is unnatural, but it was a substantial hatch and clearly worth imitating (with wet flies to imitate the sunken ovipositing females) so I went ahead with the photos.

It was collected in association with a male spinner.
