Default Winter fishing, could use some help

so i've made my move from CA to CO 2 weeks ago. and already got a chance to fish 2 days
1 yesterday in South Platte River (Deckers/Trumbull area) and 1 last weekend up in Blue River in Silverthorne

SouthPlatte River was a nice warm 30-35F day. (there was alot of ice melt flow, so that was often in a way of a good cast)
Silverthrone was 20 w/out any sun and windy, so i was frozen.
both days i saw 1 fish in each river (they were huge ) but both days i got no bites.
now i am new to winter fishing, so could be just me
i've been using: Prince Nymph, Hares Ear, WD40's, Brassies, Zebra Midges (diff colors) Copper John's .
what am i doing wrong?? what's the secret?
or is this how things really are in the winter, super slow?

o and while so far i only bought day passes, im waiting for April 1st to get my season pass. (im still out of state so didnt want to drop $59 for few days of fishing in this season) but come APRIL 1st i do hope to get out there every weekend or so, maybe even some afternoons during the week.
so if anyone around Silverthorne (i snowboard up in Keystone alot) or down in Denver wants to let me tag along with you for some fishing, that would be cool
thanks
