looking for a place for crayfishes around lake Berryessa

I went to "Putah Creek Wheelchair Trail & Restroom" and "Putah Creek Public Fishing Acces" last week to try to catch some crayfish. However, it took us like 2 hours only to get 11 of them.

Does anyone know a better location to catch crayfish more easily? Thanks!

Has anyone tried the Lake Berryessa boat loading area or how about the Lake Solano County Park area?

The last crawfish boil I was at, the crawfish were purchased online and shipped overnight from Louisiana. That was roughly 8-10 years ago and prices have gone up. If you are looking for a boil for a large group of people it's still probably your best/easiest bet. Prices for live crawfish seem to vary quite a bit from $3-$10/pound. Interestingly enough it seems to be a seasonal thing with most I saw as listed out of stock. Just a few from google search.

The otters probably put a pretty good dent in the crawfish population in Putah. You could always try the sloughs or start knocking on doors of rice farmers. Lots of crawfish in the rice fields.
