Doublebead stonefly nymphs, San Juan Worms, and Princes are good options; the doublebead will help get your fly on the bottom where it belongs. Look for midge hatches in slow glides on warmer days when the temperature is around 38-39 degrees or higher. Peak activity is 2:00-4:00 p.m.

By late February, the Bitterroot could see some Skwala stonefly activity if the days are warm enough.
