Do Early Blacks hatch as traditional Stoneflys do by crawling out of the water before shedding the nymph shuck or do they hatch as most Mayflies do by swimming to the surface and sheading the nymph shuck at the surface or like Quill Gordons do sheading the nymph shuck on the bottom then swimming to the surface??? I have heard all three several times just wanting to know which is true.

They crawl out of the water, or right along the shoreline. I have never heard of a stonefly that hatches in the water like mayflies. See Troutnut's stonefly section http://www.troutnut.com/hatch/13/Insect-Plecoptera-Stoneflies.
