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.

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.

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

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

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!
