Battled the snow and ice to go to the river today to get some Nymph samples

I know most of them but am wondering what they some of them are and info on all of them.

I think he's correct, though I'm not an entomologist.

At the coarsest level, he's definitely right, but I think the OP may have been hoping for some finer detail, like what mayfly and which caddis?

.... and I can't tell from the quality of the photos.   The first caddis case might be a grannom, but there's not enough definition in the photo. The may fly nymph might be one the swimmer sorts, but again, I can't tell.

I didn't get that he wanted exact subspecies, but

 

there's not enough definition in the photo.

Do you think it makes a difference in the fly needed to fish that water?

As a fisherman, it's been sufficient for me to say cased caddis, I thought,  but perhaps I need to look deeper.

It depends on why he's trying to id them in the first place.  If he's just trying to copy what he sees, he doesn't need to id them at all -- just copy. OTOH, if he's trying to figure out what insects live in that waters to guide his tying for later in the season, then it would matter. For example, if the cased caddis is indeed a grannom (I'm convinced either way) I would be up some green tails or looking up patterns for Mother's Day caddis, and doing so rather soon, since that hatch will happen in my part of the world in about two weeks.  Same sort of reasoning goes for the other caddis, and the may fly.
