    Just about every lake, river, creek holds crayfish. Good place to start is around the headwaters. They need structure to survive otherwise they are an easy meal. Also try tossing a trap in some slack water pools. Pay attention to the shoreline and shallows for crayfish remains, dead give away if they are near by. If you make it out post some reports and pics! Bluegills are great bait, good luck!
