Will drifting a wax worm with a split-shot work for mountain whitefish? Been wanting to catch them and just wondering if wax worms are a good bait.
Wax worms and fly maggots are both used to fish for Whitefish in waters that are open for use of bait. Use just a heavy enough splitshot to allow your bait to bounce along the bottom of the stream.
Whitefish are good smoked or pickeled. They are a white-meated fish. Watch for small bones.
