Freezing seems to be the best method imo, its easy to put breathable waders into a garbage bag and put in the freezer overnight. For people jumping watersheds on back to back days this seems to really be the most reasonable method if you have the time. Industrial 409 and heat area definitely tough on gear.

Unless you're on an extended fishing trip and camping out

At that point though are you truly jumping to an entirely different watershed? For me if I have an interest in fishing multiple streams but am considering to fish spring creek in a day, I always make spring my last stop or I have a pair of rubber hip boots that I will wear on spring and not on other streams.

I sometimes take off fishing for 8-9 days in a row.
And my travels often take me to many parts of the state.
This past spring, I even wound up in west virginia for a bit - before heading straight to central PA
So, yeah I usually fish my way through many different watersheds.

I've been carrying two - and sometimes even three - sets of waders and boots with me.
Besides mud snail concerns, some of my other haunts contain didymo.

As for freezing to kill mud snails - I've done it to my boots when I finally get home.
But just can't bring myself to stick my Simms G4Z's in the freezer!
