We Have Everything You Need for a Fun & Memorable Experience in Nature.

Catching crawdads is one of the most popular activities in our canyon! It’s a blast for all ages! There’s no better way to unplug your kids from the digital world and connect with nature. Our river has a much larger population of crawdads because there are tons of small, warm springs flowing into the water. This makes our stretch of the river warmer than normal, which encourages a greater number of crawdads.

Bring your own gear or purchase one of our specially assembled Crawdad Catching Kits. We hand-make our own crawdad catching poles, which will surely help you reel in the big ones. Our crawdad catching kits are just $15 and include the following gear:

  • Crawdad Catching Pole
  • Crawdad Bucket
  • Crawdad Net
  • Crawdad Bait

Crawdads can be caught year-round, yet they are more active and easier to catch in the spring, summer, and fall.

We are a Catch-and-Release property. We ask our visitors to leave all crawdads in the river since they won’t survive outside of their natural habitat. Thank you!

Crawdads are friendly creatures, yet their pinchers can grab your fingers so be careful!
