Cold shouldn't affect crawfish harvest much

Updated:

ROANOKE, La. (AP) - The recent cold spell is not expected to have a large effect on the area's annual crawfish harvest.

Burt Tietje (T-J), owner of Tallgrass Farm about a mile north of Roanoke, tells the American Press the freezing temperatures merely slowed activity for a little while.

Tietje said activity at the farm was slow before the cold weather arrived. He said the season typically picks up in February. Tietje says early signs point to a normal harvest.
