A lot of guys love the pink worms, for good reason - they work! If you haven't fished em before here's a few good videos to get you going:





Another way to switch it up is to Wacky Rig. Its quick easy and does work.

If you haven't tried the mad river worms yet, you should they come in every shade of pink and work great in all sizes. Rig them any way you want.

Pink worms are definitely killers. The mad river ones work very well for us, and they do come in all colors, lengths and shapes. I'm planning on picking up a bunch at the outdoor show in Portland in February. I hear they also come in UV now..........looking forward to finding and trying some of those as well. 8-)

hey SS,

Do you think its a feeding or aggression response that gets them to hit the worms?

Aggression. There aren't many "soft" bites on a pink worm. They just hammer them and tear them to shreds. Absolute killers on the Stamp in March/April when the water temp. starts to go up. We've even caught pinks in the Campbell with them. Always wondered if they would work on other salmon, just never got around to trying it.
