Can anyone tell me what is the best size of worms to use and color and when. I thought the the smaller ones were the ones to buy, in "bubble gum, but then I discovered a huge selection of dfferent sizes and colors at my local fishing shop.

Stick with the basics: a 4" bubble gum pink worm is the standard. Depending on water conditions this can vary. In low vis look at maybe a 6" fluorescent or bubble gum pink worm . In low, cleat conditions try a 4" light pink or white worm. Experiment with different types. It seems if you can find steelhead, whatever you throw at them can trigger a strike (not always depending on water conditions, depth, water types, and how much gear has been thrown at em)

4" pink or orange worms in clear water on leaders of 6 or 8 lbs test up to 18" long. 6" pink or orange worms on 8 or 10 lbs test on short leaders , 10 or 12",for colored water.
