Really cool pictures, Jason. My first impression was classic Cheumatopsyche (Little Sister Sedge), and I can't find anything to indicate otherwise--size, color, maxillary palp, and wing all seem right on. Wish I could help with the species, but with many caddisflies I'm happy just to get the genus right. :)

It is interesting to note that some books say that the coloring of many Cheumatopsyche species gets lighter as the season progresses. That certainly doesn't seem to be the case here.
