Use to go diving for them in the Vedder river below lickman road.
Mask and snorkel and a lunchbag over your shoulder. Dive down and flip rocks. Can get an easy limit in about an hour. Some biggins' too.
Jones lake is also awesome for them, huge ones in there. Most rivers or lakes around here will have them, just take a look.

its easy to get them out of jones lake its kind of a bad way to do it but it works .all you need is a flash light and some bbq tongs and a clear night walk to your knees in the water point the flash light on the rocks and wait then pick the little buggers up

I thought that was called pit lamping and happens to be illegal. I used to catch fresh water crawfish in lake whatcome using a trap and a can of tuna or sardines for bait. This was nearly 20 years ago and I don't recall exactly what the trap was like but a prawn trap should work I would think.

You could allways use a waterproof flash light submerged on a peice of line (tie on a hook) and you are covered ;)

Illegal for fish, but craybfish are not fish, they are crustaceons and belong to the lobster family....Not sure about the light use for them....Ortho
