The next day the crawdad traps were still there. I've tried the regs but i could'nt find anything about traps in juvenille rivers only. Any helps?
Why do you need Helps? The crawfish trap being there is hurting you How?
First, crawfish are not a Fish.
Second, crawfish trapping is not restricted to Adults Only. Crawfish trapping is a HUGE Family Sport. Families normally have kids and kids have a blast catching crawfish. I know this as a fact!
Third, I hope you didn't disturb the traps because you assumed they belonged to Adults because that is in fact illegal. If in fact they were traps set by an Adult, that is not illegal where fishing for regular Fish would be.
I'm curious why you are so concerned about the crawfish traps being in the creek. The more crawfish removed from that creek will greatly improve fishing there.
