Yes it is very hard to find captive ones and I think it is a hassel when you can just find one out in the wild. As long as you collect one from the wild legally (fishing liscence here in CA) then it has no detrimental affect on the wild population that are reproducing normally and occur in good densities in occupied habitats in your area. And especially since you see them everyday after school you will not directly bring down any reproduction of the species. But if you are taking one from the wild be sure to give it a good life! When I was a kid I used to make a little noose out of this one type of grass and then I would just cut the noose off of them after I caught them. It works well since they cannot see the grass and it also saves you the time of chasing and getting bit a few times. But yeah during the summer they do come out to the surface more and usually they are really easy to get once out in the open. Good luck and hope this helps!
