    I usually catch mine off of the greenway in the boro. I use a 3.5′, 1/4″ mesh cast net. Any small/shallow creek or river with a hard bottom is best, or has been for me. You have to watch out for large rocks on the bottom or you can get your net hung and tear it up. I try to go on sunny days as they are easier to see on the bottom. You could also use minnow traps or seines. I have not had much luck with minnow traps, as they usually get stolen.
