Nice photos and trip report Granny. The stone fly belongs to the Pteronarcys family of giant stoneflies. They are actually fairly common in our streams. They generally emerge at night by crawling out of the stream onto rock or stream side vegetation. You will often see their shucks on rocks, trees partially in the water, and bridge pilings.
