These flies were handpicked by Trouts' own Tanner Smith, Zeke Hersh, and Ivan Orsic for your January on the water.
It's JANUARY and that means midges are going to be the primary fare for trout throughout the Colorado Rockies. For those of us who are looking to avoid seasonal depression, it should be noted that we have turned the corner from losing sunlight to gaining sunlight. That's right! Days are getting longer as we progress through January and into the spring.
While midges will be the primary food this month, fish can still be had on attractors, blue-winged olives, eggs, and streamers when conditions are right.
