    Small Mayfly in the Baetis family that hatches early and late in the year. BWO stands for Blue Wing Olive and is a standard reference to mayflies with an olive body and a blue wing. Not all BWOs are Baetis. It just has become a common usage in the west because how big the hatches is. Baetis are a small mayfly size 22-16, with 18 being the most common. In Washington you have 5 different subspecies. I have seen steelhead on the Deschutes feeding on them just like a trout. In Utah it is one of the best hatches of the year and provides some of the best dry fly fishing. Hope this helps.
