Hi Hank.

Welcome to our forum and to troutnut. Actually this is the place. This site
has some amazingly knowledgeable people that I feel comfortable saying,
they will have your answers. A great deal of the member are in the western
region, from Mexico city to Alaska. Some of professionals here gave the specie
status to many bugs you will find.

Baetidae - Camelobaetidius - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Centroptilum - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Cloeodes - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Fallceon - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Labiobaetis - Bluewinged Olive
Caenidae - Caenis - Bluewinged Olive
Ephemerellidae - Attenella - Small Buuewinged Olive
Ephemerellidae - Drunella - Slatewinged Olive/Western Green Drake
Ephemerellidae - Ephemerella - Pale Morning Dun

Ephemeridae - Ephemera - Brown Drake

Every area/state is going to have a huge disparity in the type of water you will fish, or the river you will fish...spring creek vs. freestone river, high Mt small stream vs. lower elevation big river.
