Got out between the storms today. All they would hit is a crawfish pattern.
lots of 6" chubs and 5 bows... here are a few pics.
used the 11" 3wt rod with a 4 wt. nymph tip line.

I've been fishing with crawfish patterns for almost a month now on a localish river and have gotten lots of bass and a bunch of trout. The fish definitely love crayfish, even the shiners ;)

Do you dead drift a crayfish pattern like any nymph, or do you fish it as a streamer?

Crayfish are very versatile flies. Try dead drifting them like you would a nymph (tight line or with an indicator), strip them, or slowly swing them through a tail out. I like a strip and pause retrieve, hopping them along the bottom. Fish often strike on the pause. I also like to tight line through a run. The best crayfish flies are weighted at the back so they look like a fleeing crayfish when stripped. If not weighted at the back, try placing a split shot about 6-8 inches up the leader for the same effect. Two of the best patterns are Mays full motion crayfish and Clouser crayfish (use a split shot with the Clouser pattern).
