What to Expect in January
How to use this section.
Hatches divided by half-month. Super Major Minor Slight None
Size 18 and smaller Scud patterns are effective for Rocky Ford's trout; use olive or gray with a hint of olive. You might team your scud with a midge larva pattern.
If you see rising fish, they're probably after midges; blue-winged olives fade a bit when it's cold. For a midge hatch, use a Griffiths Gnat or Sprout Midge. Otherwise, cast midge pupae. Leech patterns can also produce trout in the afternoons. Other good choices include San Juan Worms, Blood Midges, Six Packs, and Jeremy's Leech
Driving can be treacherous due to freezing rain, snow, or ice. It can get cold here; it's not unusual for nighttime temperatures to dip into the single digits in January.
