I need a good photo of a "live" Pueblo Reservoir Crawdad.
Going out on a limb here, but if anyone has one this is the place.

Worst case, I guess I buy a trap and capture a few myself.

Thanks in advance.

i have a trap you can use if you want
I learned last summer talking to a gentleman at bear creek that you can leave traps out for craws overnight AS LONG as its marked with your information and CID number. Id do it but in sure some dickhead eye fishin would mess with it.

They look a lot different under the water than they do out of it. The colors are just different and most times are more vibrant underwater. When you see them diving the claws usually appear bright blue. Just my observations.

You gotta be f'ing kidding me?? No traps on A town?
I live a mile from there and trapping was half the reason I bought a boat.
I looked at the regs and didn't see anything about not being able to use them.
I'm not doubting you but would really like to see it in the regs.

Thanks. That really sucks though. There's no fish in there to eat those damn things anyway!!

In the link it says something about obtaining written permission from the open space director. Will they issue a permit and if so, how do you go about getting one?
