Crawfish Patterns?

A friend of mine informed me he hammered some very large brown trout in the Lackawanna River near my home on crawfish patterns and also imitation craws last year. Any of you gentlemen use them.

Re: Crawfish Patterns?

The Clouser Crayfish is murder on smallmouth bass, especially in the smaller sizes.

They are pretty easy to tie. It's worth a try for trout. And you can always use them on the river from smallies.

Re: Crawfish Patterns?

I agree with the wooly bugger. I noticed early in the year the smallies were spitting out crayfish parts that very orange. I started tying wooly buggers with orange maribou tail,orange chenille body with brown chenille rib,brown hackle spirled from back to front and brown hackle behind the head. I had some fantastic fishing with this pattern early in the year.

Re: Crawfish Patterns?

My photo bucket is acting up, but I ty a pretty decent one. I caught some trout on it, and had a co worker test it for me on smallmouth. They caught a few but they landed 15 carp on them. The one was 35# and snapped the guys 8 wt orvis.

Let me know if you want the recipe. I could email you a pic of it, and that carp.

I use a short clouser minnow made from fox squirrel tail.

Re: Crawfish Patterns?

The Clouser Crayfish has worked for me for trout and bass. The Clouser swimming nymph is awesome too.
