Crayfish ?

Never fished Hurricane. I'd assume there is a crayfish population as is true with most of the lakes in the White Mountains.

Can anyone verify / contradict this ?

I'm planning on bringing a crayfish trap. Nothing better than a mess of mudbugs and some icy cold beer.............

Thx.

Scott

Even cheap hot dogs will work in a pinch.

Dollar store canned makeral or cat food. If the water was warm, I would use commercial bait.
