Double nymph rig with Pink Lightning Bugs, Scuds, Worms, & PT's will get you into fish pretty easily on most days. Slowly stripped or swung streamers is another way to catch fish in the Winter. There can be dry fly fishing with midges but it's usually only for an hour or so in the afternoons when the wind isn't blowing.
Crazy "warm" for January, this week will see highs all above freezing -and into the 50's. There will also be some wind associated with this warmer front but that's not unusual for the MO.
