We are in Texas and this is the second time I’ve seen one of these. It looks like a giant larvae or kind of like an earwig. It’s about 3 inches in length. I found it in shallow water under a rock on the Brazos River in Central Texas.

Dear Scott,
We love posting photos of Hellgrammites, the aquatic larvae of Dobsonflies.  Hellgrammites are a favorite bait for fresh water fishermen.
  We have still not been able to discover the origin of the name Hellgrammite.
