Hey all, has anyone ever come across local wild crayfish? I read about signal crays being on the island and in the valley but couldn't find any specific location

how do you find them in the river do you just turn over rocks? I looked at pictures of white pine beach and I think I would have to use a trap to catch them with the kids this time of year

I have seen them in the stream that comes out of Burnaby lake. I ride the bike trail(between Gaglardi and North Rd.) that goes along side that stream looking for driftwood once in a while & have seen them in there.

When I was a kid we used to fish them out of a small arm of the salmon river that runs through Forest Knoles in Langley/Fort Langley. We just tied meat to fishing line and then when the cray grabbed it we whipped them out of the water, crude but effective, good kicks too...well not for the crayfish I guess.

when we were kids we used to catch 'em in the creek @ Princess Park on the North Shore all the time. Also SW crays in the mud in Deep Bay on the island.
