I've got a couple of go-to's for fishing Idaho in the winter, but the one that does best is a "Big Ugly" Rubberlegs:

In Dec., Jan. & Feb. I spend more time on large, deep, very rocky, clear water lakes than I do on the rivers. Mostly Bow's, Browns, Landlocked Salmon, Some Mack's & Koke's in deeper water with Hi-D heads.

For the bigger fish in Boulder Creek and nearby: Bellyache minnow #2-4

For the smaller fish when I get tired of missing the bigger ones:I call it a winter warrior #18, just a Rainbow warrior in dark colors.

Been catching a few medium sized fish on a #12 bird's nest too (upper right version has been working best):
