Went to the valley today since its been awhile been hittin the cricks lately. Hooked up with a few nice browns, cant beat that tug on the line from a wild brownie. I got a new camera waterproof and what not , finally got to try it out  takes pretty nice photos but still have to tweak it. Took a few of some hatched bug shells i'm thinking stones? maybe goldens? and flipped over a rock to see what i could find and found this any ideas?

The stonefly shucks are common stoneflies (Perlidae, not goldens) and the last picture is a Dobsonfly nymph, aka hellgramite.  IMO.

The shucks kinda look like Golden Stones to me, hard to tell from just the shuck. Right size and time of year. I'm not sure what Dude meant, as far as I know Golden Stones are in the Family Perlidae? I agree about the other nymph.

There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.

This is where identification gets muddy.  When it comes to common nomenclature, there is no standard.  I always assumed that golden stones were in the Pteronarcyidae family.  The black and orange ones were commonly called Salmonflies, and the yellow ones were Goldens.  In any event, I think we both agree that they appear to be Perlidae.
