I got some good shinners, creek chubs and daces this year, all by hand or small net.
I have a trap, but I haven't learned how to use it yet. Any tips would be appreciated.

Well if you are talking.about a minnow trap you are going to want to wait till the farm ditches slow down and have a little less water on them, about end of summer, then you can get some fatheads. Is it a trap or a seine net?

Its a funnel type trap.
I've always put them in lakes and ponds with no luck. Ditches would make sense.

Okay so it is a minnow trap yeah I would wait till some of the water in the ditches goes down, they are everywhere too, in the fort collins loveland area.
