Crayfish (Arthropoda: Crustacea, Decapoda, Orconectes sp)

Variously-sized species occur under rocks, burrowing into bank sides, etc. Sensible people in the Deep South eat them. On our Spring Creeks the trout do but without cayenne pepper. Sizes within species tend to increase as summer progresses into autumn. Smaller, softer, molting individuals seem to be preferred. My favorite pattern is Bob Clouser's Crawfish

Watch for an upcoming piece on this productive winter pattern
