Alternate between the two. Scuds are common forage for high country trout on lakes. I use an olive scud to cast to visible cruisers. I also use an orange scud to prospect deep. It's highly visible in deep water and sometimes trout feeding on plankton will take it (or so says the guy that I buy them from).

The size 12 soft hackle wooly worm (black and grizzly) I use "just plain looks buggy" goes the dude I get them from. I like to fish it over the edges of rocky shelves where trout look to be holding. It sinks quickly and then I strip it on long, slow retrieves. I keep no slack in the line so I can feel the take. This fly has accounted for well over half of my high country brook, cutthroat, and golden trout. I also like to cast a size 16 S-H wooly worm to visible cruisers. I cast it out in front of the cruiser and watch it sink to the fish's level. If they don't see it right away, I'll give it a quick twitch and the trout always go right to it. I've never seen a cruiser refuse it.
