Use a pinkish/green mix rooster tail. Especially in rivers near fallen logs or underwater structures below dams.

Fish downstream, around riffles. use crafish, or other natural forage imatation. rooster tails are also useful.

Use a small bread ball, put your line just about 6 inchs under the water and dangle.
