Live Worm Fishing Tips For River Fishing

Fishing With Worms - Live Worm Fishing Tips For River Fishing

Expert Author Trevor Kugler
There may be no better bait to use when river fishing than worms. When I use the term "worms" I'm referring specifically to live fishing worms such as nightcrawlers and/or red worms. And when I use the term "river fishing" I'm referring specifically to river fishing while wading in the river that you are fishing. Wading and fishing in a river containing trout, smallmouth bass, or even walleye is my favorite style of fishing and fishing with worms (specifically live worms) is extremely effective in these situations.
In this article I will draw upon my twenty plus years of experience using live worms as bait and provide a few live worm fishing tips that will help you catch more fish the next time that you go river fishing. These river fishing tips have served me well over the years and helped me catch a lot of fish. I know they will do the same for you.
  1. Have An Effective Worm Carrier - The biggest challenge when fishing with worms while wading in a river is carrying your worms. Worm containers are bulky and unwieldy, making the worms difficult to access on the water. This is why having an effective worm carrier such as a bait bag is so important. By using a bait bag to carry your worms while you are fishing your worms are always at your fingertips waiting to be used. This makes baiting up and re-baiting a cinch. Having am effective worm carrier is of the utmost importance when river fishing with worms.
  2. Use The Proper Worm Rigs - Anytime that you are fishing with worms using the proper worm rigs is of the utmost importance as well. This is where a set of gang hooks come into play. When it come to fishing with worms gang hook worm rigs allow you to present live worms in an outstretched and natural manner, which makes them much more effective when they are being used as bait. This is especially true when river fishing. A live worm rigged on a set of gang hooks and drifted naturally with the current of a river is a very effective fishing technique.
  3. Keep Your Worms Alive - When fishing with worms it is vitally important that your worms be as lively as possible. This means keeping them dark and as cool as possible when you are fishing. A bait bag is great for keeping your live worms "in the dark" and the entire bag can be dipped into the water to keep the worms cool as well. The bottom line is that your worms should be as lively as possible anytime that you fishing with worms.
Keep these simple worm fishing tips in mind the next time you are out river fishing and you will experience much more success, there's no doubt about it. Also, remember to spend as much time on the river as you can, because there is no substitute for practice when it comes to fishing.
