Nightcrawlers are one of the best live baits for targeting many species of trout. Cutthroat trout will eat a nightcrawler and other types of worms such as red worms. Rig these lively worms under a bobber, on a split shot rig, drop shot rig or any of your other favorite types of live bait rigs and you should be able to catch some cutthroat trout.
The smaller red worms are the perfect size for smaller trout. If you’re looking for action, these worms will work well.
