I have had the most success with scuds fishing tailwaters and lakes. The key for me is to match the size and color of what the fish are eating, seining the river really helps. The trout seem to key on the color of scuds more than any other fly that I know of. I fish them dead drift with a strike indicator as near to the bottom as possible. I will often fish 2 or 3 at a time until I hit on exactly the right size and color. I also use a scud as the top fly in a nymph rig with a size 22-26 midge or RS-2 below.
