Love ’em or hate ’em, there’s no denying egg patterns can be a very effective way to catch trout during the winter spawning season.
Eggs provide an easy, calorie-packed, non-escaping meal for trout. It is also thought that trout also eat eggs because they view them as competition to the survival of their own eggs.
They work well in rivers and lakes.
Swing them in the current under a strike indicator in the rivers.
Fish them statically near or on the bottom of the lake, if there is an inlet or outlet in the dam, that’s your target area.
Eggs often look white when they released from the spawning females, turning orange the older they get.
Orange is definitely the most successful of the egg patterns. Always have a few in your box during winter.
