Hi I found this guy today (May 26th 2016) on the screen door of my house. I thought it was a caddisfly, but those feathered antenna! He also looks like he has yellow fangs.

Dear JRH,
This is a male Fishfly, most likely a Spring Fishfly,
Chauliodes rastricornis, a species pictured on BugGuide where it states they are found “Near calm bodies of water with detritus.”
