Sweltsa onkos (Sallfly) Stonefly AdultSweltsa onkos (Sallfly) Stonefly Adult View 8 PicturesI'm just guessing this is Chloroperlidae, since it's little and yellow. If anyone has a less haphazard identification, feel free to post it.

I believe this is probably Sweltsa onkos. There are three Sweltsa species commonly listed for most of the Northeast (onkos, naica, and lateralis), and their individual pronotum/head markings seem rather distinctive.
