<< The idea that this behavior is more common in adults than in juveniles
mean that my techniques for looking for adult madtoms down among the
detritus and other substrate materials may be all wrong. Maybe I should be
hitting higher up in the vegetation! So, vertically speaking, where does
everyone find their madtoms? The young of the year that I have been rearing
all originally came from out of a dense layer of decaying cottonwood,
sycamore, and oak leaves in about a foot of water. >>

I've found most of my madtoms up in the roots of willow or other bank-hugging
trees and under rocks in mild to moderate current.
