Bighorn River Scud Fishing Information
Scuds are a freshwater crustacean that are a key component to the bighorn river trouts diet. Scuds provide a high level of protein year round and aid in the tremendous growth rate of the Bighorn’s Trout.
I find the Scud most effective during early spring and again during high water. During high water these relatively large morsels flush into the water column and fish gorge. I have caught trout in June with mouthfuls of scuds.
A Scud can be an effective point fly and attractor anytime of the year on the Bighorn.
Effective Colors: Grey, Pink, Orange
Sizes: 12 -16
