Scuds

In the waters of British Columbia, scuds are second in importance only to chironomids. Scuds compromise over 20% of the trout's food intake. Scuds are one of the staples in any lake as they are available to the trout year round. The scud is especially important in the early spring or late fall prior to ice on.
