Soft-shell question in Entomology Posted September 5, 2005 · Report reply In my waters they are more of a flesh tone. Kind of a light ginger/tan....even so pale as to be nearly white. I used to catch crawdads when I was younger, and even though it's been some time the smallies are slamming a ginger wooley bugger right now. This time of year; every year, they are after that ginger wooly bugger. I would have to believe that they can be any lighter shade of color that is the predominanat color of the crayfish in your area.
