What kind of freshwater invertebrate is this ?

Hey guys, I saw this in about a foot or two of water today on the stream I was fishing. I have seen these in the past, always in the fall, but they were on rocks at the waters edge. They're about 5 inches long and and as thick as my little finger, looks like a Senko....Ha. Got any ideas what they are? I'm sure they would be a tasty treat for a smallie.

I think it's just a large millipede crawling underwater. I don't think they are truly aquatic, but can survive submerged for short periods of time. I sent the pic to my brother-in-law to see what he says about an ID. He's an aquatic biologist.
