I'm trying! Dipnetting in leaf packs is a decent method for finding larvae and juveniles but turning up an adult is fairly uncommon, though it can be done. Trapping is the best method for adults and something I don't really have time for in any of the known Necturus ranges down here. That being said, something other than a young of the year would be nice. At least I'm sure of what I was looking at this time ;)

Why cant you find an adult?
