This spider was in my workshop, did not move the two hours I was working, think it is either a Wolf Spider (Lycosidae) or a Fishing Spider (Dolomedes), but not sure, but probably Female

Moved from ID Request. Fishing spider.

Here's the Dolomedes eye arrangment vs. Lycosid. The abdomen pattern, and posture also remind me of Dolomedes.
Fishing Spider, Wolf Spider
