Subject:       Gray River Worms in Missouri

When I was a kid along Spring River in Southwest Missouri, I used to dig
what we referred to as "gray river worms."  They were always found in mud
banks and were easily spotted by their holes.  What endeared these worms to
bait fishermen was their resistance to heat.  They required no
refrigeration during an entire day of July heat.  

Does anyone have any information on such a critter?  Can they be farmed?
Does anyone farm them?

Thanks in advance for any help you might give.
