    Saw some others hatching, but this is the only one I could catch.

    Guessing a little brown stonefly, what do you think?

    Little Brown Stones around here, Eastern PA, are a lot darker. Brown or reddish brown. And what we call Yellow Sallies are small yellow stoneflies. Don't usual see them till later in the year. The one in the picture seems to be light Olive. I had to look this up but there is a small stonefly called an Olive Sallie. Maybe that's what you have.

    Yellow Sally I believe. There are 60 species across NA.

    The pattern I found years ago included a red or orange butt. I recall this was a characteristic of an egg laying stage.
