Worms occur in dense populations in many silty stream and lake beds. Worms also occur in the bottoms of fast moving gravel bed rivers. During times of floods, catastrophic drift can expose many worms to waiting trout. During these high water periods a San Juan Worm drifted along the bottom can be deadly. On local rivers "the worm" is a very productive fly during winter months or any time the river rises due to flash floods.  Aquatic worms come in a variety of colors ranging from tan to red.  Often a fake worm fly that is brighter colored than real ones will
produce more strikes, especially when the water is turbid.  Be sure to have several colors of worms in your fly box. Stomach autopsies on hatchery steelhead have revealed that they also eat worms, even during the coldest winter months.

San Juan Worm, Red
Some aquatic worms are reddish.  We have never seen any worms as bright as these flies, but don't let that fool you.  There have been lots of trout caught on this pattern.

San Juan Worm, Hot Pink
We spent a lot of time screening the Deschutes River, looking at the aquatic invertebrates that live there.  The majority of worm that live in the substrate are pinkish.  The first time we fished this pattern during spring run-off the trout gave it two thumbs up

San Juan Worm, Shell Pink
Some worms are very light colored. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with the color of the substrate they are living in. Lighter colored worms are often better when fishing in clear water.

Get Down Worm, Red
Worm action in many streams happens during times of extreme run-off. Getting your fly down to where the fish are can be a problem. Use the Get Down Worm to...get down. This is a great dropper fly with weight to get unweighted worms or other small nymphs down to the depth where fish are holding. Or it is a great prospecting fly when fished by itself.
