Category: Scud Fly Patterns

Scuds are a common and high protein food source in many stillwater lakes and trout tailwaters. Scuds actually live and breed in nutrient rich lakes and then flush out of the bottom of many tailwaters. Scuds need vegetation and rich, highly oxygenated water to survive. Scuds are also found in many spring creeks, due to the year around vegetation and oxygen. Scuds are one of trout’s favorite food sources. Scuds are full of protein and are responsible for allowing trout to grow to enormous sizes
