Is there any reason you posted three images of one picture and seven images of the other picture? I guess you wanted to make sure we saw it.

I think it might be a caddis, probably a member of the Hydropsychidae family. You can see what appear to be gills under the body and the filaments on the end of the body.

You are correct that it is a hydropsychid. And I would go with one of the Hydropsyche species.
