I've never seen white patches on wings, but it looks like a large stonefly. Maybe it got hit with falling bird poop.

That would be called a "fish fly"

Here's a former thread on it.

It's a fish fly, not sure about species, but they are pretty common, though not abundant.
Not an adult hellgramite, it is a different species. Hellgramite adult is a dobson fly.But they are in the same family of flies.

I think that is an alderfly - related to the dobson fly, but not as big and nasty. I saw them flying around the Gunpowder and tribs last year. I too thought they were stoneflies. If you catch one, they have very aggressive mandibles! They don't hurt, but can definitely latch onto you.
