I am certainly no expert, but I do have more than thirty years of trout fishing experiance. Why do trout like corn? That is one of those mysteries that probably never will be solved, just like the JFK thing. My personal opinion here is that it just looks like something that needs to be eaten. Trout, for the most part, seem to be opprotunistic feeders, that is they will take almost anything if if is presented in the correct manner. I have cleaned trout and found ciggerette butts in their belly along with corn, sticks, pebbles and yes even flies. So you see, its no so much what you fish with, unless there is a hatch, its how you present it to the fish. I also have it on pretty good authority (the folks at Buford Hatchery) that trout are NEVER fed corn. Their food is a cylindrical pellet about 3/16" dia. and about 1/4" long and grey/brown in color. It really doesn't even resemble corn.
PS. I would like to hear other opinions.
