There are many ways to fish a trout worm.

The following are some of the more popular ways.


I prefer to use a #10 Aberdeen hook with all of the follow ways to rig a trout worm.

All of the following rigging can be bottom fished or under a float.


(Note: 20 pound fishing line was used in the pictures so it would photograph better much small line is recommend)

I like to add 3/0 Split shot(s) depending on the current about 12" above the hook if I am want to us a float I will attach it above the split shot, so I am fishing the desired depth.


  1. The Inline method.

The In line is where the worm is straight with the hook shank as seen in the picture below I personally like to cover the hook eye with the worm.

If you are getting strikes and not hooking them you might consider cutting off a little of the tail however cutting off some of the tail will reduce some of the action.


2. The San Juan method

The San Juan method is very similar to the inline method but instead on starting the hook in the head of the worm it is started down in the body as you can see in the picture below.
