In northern Ohio Necturus breeds in the fall from Sept to Nov.  The eggs
are deposited the following spring or summer.

Not too much info on Necturus habits.  Get a copy of Bishops "Handbook of
Salamanders".  Tim Matson @ the Cleveland Musuem of Nat Hist did some work
with them re: pesticides.  He may prove to be the best resource on nat hist
