In the Springtime as the runoff starts and the rivers rise, lots of worms get washed into the water and the fish feed on them. I have done well when the rivers are high and dirty fishing San Juan Worms. Sometimes after rainstorms, I have also done well with worms. My best colors are red or pink. There are more worms available for the fish to eat than we think, that is why the worm works so well.
