Best trout worms

by Izzy -

These are the best trout worms you can find outthere. The new ones have 15 in a pack and the old ones have 10 a pack. I only fish for trout and I can assure you that you won't be able to find better or more productive worms than these. I only use 5 different colors throughout the year. They work in any conditions you just have to find the right color. They come in a convenient plastic package that reseals. I typically use a small light hook in order to allow the worm to float and I add a splitshot above the hook. Make sure to practice dead drifting it and you will have a lot of success. These are my favorite artificial bait.

Awesome Bait!!!

by Old Tireman

I have been using these almost exclusively since mid-summer on trout streams in Western PA, especially the fluorescent red. Thread them on a #10 or 12 Eagle Claw Red bait holder hook, a BB split shot 4 to 6" up and drift under a Trout Magnet float. You can cast upstream and drift down or open the bail and float downstream. 50 to 60' drifts easy to do depending on pool size. The trout magnet float allows for easy depth adjustment, whether for a 12" riffle or a 4' deep pool. They hold up well on multiple strikes; I caught 3 trout including a 16" brook on same worm yesterday! Tip with a wax worm and they become especially deadly.

Power Worms

by PW -

These are the best trout worms on the market. They float and have the power scent. Jigged under a small split shot and the trout really go for them. This is a bait a trout fisherman should always carry.

Rubber worm for Trout?

by Lou -

This is one of the best bait I had ever used. Who would of thought that a rubber worm would be so productive for trout? Used it for steelhead, so I thought let try it in my home river? Stocked trout love them. They stay on longer. Works best in fast water. Tryed pink, shad, natural so far. 5 stars...

Catch more Trout

by Old Tireman -

If your are not using these for stream trout fishing, you are not catching nearly as many fish as you could! The hot colors for me are bubble gum pink and fluorescent red, especially the pink this spring. I'm on my 4th or 5th pack and usually catch 3 to 5 fish per worm before it's too tattered to continue. At 15 worms to a pack, you do the math. I use 4 lb. P-clear line, a fluorocarbon leader, a size 10 or 12 hook, usually Eagle Claw bait holder red. Thread the worm on hook about 1" from top just like regular garden hackle. If local regulations permit, tip with a wax worm. One or two BB split shot about 5-6" up leader and use a Trout Magnet foam float or something very similar. Don't use those red/white hard plastic goobers...they land too hard and are noisy. Adjust float so worm is drifting above the tops of the rocks in pool. Cast upstream and try and keep a fairly tight line. Cross pool casting requires a lot of line mending as you want the float to lead the parade and not have the line drag it too fast. A long rod helps here, I use a 9' Fenwick. Or, you can drift downstream with an open bail, using a finger to keep line tight. You will learn fairly soon to distinguish between when a rock or snag pulls the float down and an actual strike takes it down. They work in the fast water too although your drifts are usually shorter. Hooked and landed over 40 fish last Wednesday in a little over 6 hours of fishing, 25 of those in the last 2 1/2 hours before dark. You have something better, I want to know about it!

great trout bait

by Old Fisherman -

Dip these in PowerBait or Smell Jelly liquid and it doubles the fish you'll catch.

Trout killer

by SDfish858 -

Size 10 hook and a split shot up anywhere from 18-30 inches. You will catch trout.

Stupid good

by brown crappie

Slower water in streams these are money. Wacky style with a small split shot and straight on a small jig head. You can't miss. They are somewhat durable too.

Reliable Bait

by Old Tireman -

These have been my go-to trout bait for several years. I like to drift them under a Trout Magnet float, couple small split shot, threaded on a #10 or 12 hook like regular garden hackle. The float allows easy changes for depth depending on the steam and allows much longer drifts or to get to other areas not easily reached by normal casting. The bubble gum pink and the florescent red have been the best producers for me.

I wasted minnows because of these bad boys

by monch511

I haven't even had a chance to float these worms with a jig head yet, but I'm assuming it will do well. I threw a couple of split shots with a size 10 hook on my rod, Texas-rigged a cheese worm, and figured I'd cast out while setting up a float rig on my other rod. I never even touched the second rod before limiting out for the day. Great bait to fish from the bottom with, and I haven't had a bad day this season since buying these worms.

by dman13

The rave reviews and I was hesitant but after seeing my father catch a 6lb rainbow trout, I'm sold.

What's more to say

by River Brown

What more can be said that the others have not stated. These worms work. I catch hundreds of trout each year, and the majority of them come on either these worms, or yellow PowerBait eggs (garlic). If you add a bit of scent, such as Pro-Cure, the catch rate increases. For native trout, I always add a scent. Stock trout will bite anything, so no scent needed. Red/natural/pumpkin/cheese on bright days, bright colors on dark days. The reason I like these worms for stockers, is that they last a few fish before being torn up. I rig these worms on a #10 EC Aberdeen, or a #12 Owner Mosquito. Keep in mind that these worms are only semi-buoyant, so a light hook is needed to keep them off of the bottom, which is why I prefer the Owner #12. I nose hook the worm with the Owner, and T-rig with the Aberdeen hooks. Leader length depends on the water column the fish are hanging in. Begin by using a 2' leader, and work up if needed. Everything you need to fish these worms can be found at FishUSA.

Always carry them

by Joelster

Great bait in lots of productive colors.... bubble gum, natural and florescent red seems to always work. Drift off bottom with small split shot for best success.

Power worms for steelhead

by Salmo

Bubble gum color excellent for spring steelhead and I use float fishing with # 6 Gamakatsu Octopus Hooks.
