That is either a hesoperla (or is it Isoperla, I don't remember since they moved them from Perlidae) stonefly (little green) or a green lacewing. I need to see the bottom of the abdomen to tell for sure, although I think it is probably the little green stonefly. Used to fish the little green stones in mid-summer in the Pocono Mountain rivers and streams. Caught many a nice trout with both nymph and adult imitations. I also fished the little greens on many streams in Montana with equally good results.

Correct!

Yellow Stone, of the order Plecoptera, with larvae found......under stones! To wit, a good indication of a streams health is to look and find larvae on the stream bottom, for they will not survive in polluted water, or water with a low oxygen levels.
In this larval stage, they are an important part of the diet of Trout and other fish. Adults vary in size from 1/4 inch to a whoping 2 inches!
It,s 8:30, do you know where your Yellow Sally is?
