Maggots as trout bait

Just wondering if they are any good for catching trout as I'm moving back to halls gap in vic in january and the only fishing there is fresh water. Caught trout an redfin on lures, figured I might try maggots if anyone thinks they'll work

over east i used to use maggots very succesfully on trout, not as well on reddies.

use the maggots with the course fishing method and you will clean up

ive also read in fishing books that trout are very succeptable to a couple of live maggots on the hook i spose it's just like fishing for redfin with worms.
