Thanks for all the great comments guys.  I trap the Columbia river between Chelan and Entiat.  I use a handcock trap and set it up on the shore with the trip can covered with a few inches of water.  The river goes up and down so it makes it hard to keep it set just right.  I don't think it matters much cause I caught one yesterday and the trap was all the way out of the water.  I use willow branches and weave them in the wire at the top of the trap and use a little beaver caster lure.  It seems to work really good.  I only have one trap right now.  With limited time it works out alright for now.  I'm working on building a cage trap for them right now to see if that works. 

Take care Tyler
