    Its what they're meant to eat. They're the clean up crew of their habitat. But they are also relentless cannibals. When they Molly, they should be separated til their new shell hardens.
    But then what do I know? I'm just a lowly woodcutter.

    I know this is from last year but I'm down in the langley/ maple ridge area for work for another week or so and would love to try to find some. Any hints on where I can try for these lake bugs?

    Crayfish in majority of the lakes/rivers/streams ex in the lower mainland its more so a water quality issue or numbers. Lakes/rivers with salmon runs usually have good numbers

    Pit lake and river has them for example

    Re: Crayfish

    Has anyone ever had any luck with Crayfish on the Coquitlam River? I have tried several spots with raw chicken as bait with no interest at all.

    I grew up in PoCo and we used to catch them in the river. They are definately there, maybe not in high numbers.

    Great to know, Thank you. I guess I must just be at the wrong location and/or wrong bait.

    Hot dog wieners... cheapest you can find (may contain chicken and/or beef and/or pork)

    We have used pretty much everything. Lots of different kinds of dog food, cat food, tuna, chicken liver, bacon ... never had anything come very close to cheap hot dog wieners.
