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 Family Baetidae (Blue-Winged Olives). From Silver Creek in Idaho.

Female Baetidae (Blue-Winged Olives) Mayfly SpinnerFemale Baetidae (Blue-Winged Olives) 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.
