    In the Warsaw area they have been up on the banks in the backs of coves where the water is warmer. I have been finding them on mud banks in as shallow as a foot of water. Just do some looking and you'll find them. This cold weather may have pushed them deeper but a couple weeks ago they were still shallow when it was cold. Chris
