Re: How Common are these on the east coast?
Got any more pics of it? Its hard to get a good idea of what it is from that shot, but Golden Stones are pretty common in the East. Check out troutnut dot com you can find just about any aquatic insect on that site.
I was just looking at the site and it looks alot like a Snowfly, another species of Stone.
