Freshwater scuds or shrimp are often overlooked. These shrimp type crustacean are found in many trout fisheries and can be tasty morsels for fish. They are often found in greater numbers in lakes and slack water sections of rivers but do not be afraid to fish them in faster moving water as well. Scuds are poor swimmers and moving water making them easy prey. They are effectively fished when using the same dead drift nymphing techniques under a strike indicator.
