I live way way north of you. Here's some plante I've sen in the river out

Ludwigia (I think)
Sag (or val)
(more than I forget offhand)

That's right, Riccia. The stuff I can barely keep alive.
Found a piece floating down the river, just minding its
own business. Given we have about 2 weeks of warm weather
here a year this stuff, allegedly a "tropical" plant,
managed to hibernate under several feet of snow and

Penn. is downright tropical compared to this place.
