Dolomedes
Hi,
This looks like a young fishing spider, Dolomedes (it's pretty undefined at this age, so I can't give an accurate species). They like to hang out by water and snatch up morsels either on the water's surface or very close to the surface, hence their name!
Awesome find.
Have a good one,
