What scope are you using?

From your orange zone you should see the nebula when using a nebula filter. Stay at a fairly low power, as the nebula is fairly large, and some surrounding sky to better frame it will aid in detection.
You have sufficient aperture to see many stars in the cluster, which should become visible at moderate to moderately high magnification.
From a dark site, where stars to 6th magnitude are seen by the eye alone, both these objects are well enough visible as hazy spots in (unfiltered) 7X35 binoculars.

If you're looking for something that looks like either m35 or m37, you could easily miss it in brightish skies. From bright skies in a small scope at low power, it can appear as a terribly ghostly faint glow, that with higher power will break up into a grainy glow something like a globular cluster without a central condensation. Darker skies and moderate to large apertures will really "let it shine", although it will always be more subtle than M35 and M37.
