rivers are harder places for floats then ponds are...but they will work...since legholds are set so light for m-rats, i would suggest making a float, and attacching a newspaper box to the top, and cut grooves in the side for the springs...Then, set a 110 in that end...maybe even do both ends like that...that way, your traps wont go off so easily from the current as a leghold would...
Oh, ya, btw, place the lure in the middle if the box.
Another idea (but this one is for mostly ponds) is to make a float and attatch a 110 at each end on its side, like you tipped if over, so when a mrat swims up to the float, it will either swim up thru the trap or try to walk across it, and youll have it either way...hope you can understand my typing...im kinda a fast typer...l,ol
Hope this helps.

thanks, i have seen muskrats on the river when i go fishing and wasnt sure if there was a set that would work besides the pocket set

it sounds like your float is a good idea though and im gonna try it
