That is a strange one. Wish your photo had better definition. Doesn't look like a stonefly nymph to me. With the truncate (or perhaps vertical) head, and quite widely separated thoracic segment plates, it really doesn't look exactly like any aquatic insect immature I recall seeing. How long was it? Was it clinging to the underside of a submerged rock?
Best regards,
