I have not fished there in a couple years, but there is normally a little bit of a current. Still fish able from a float tube. As for catching those little rascals. I recommend a 1/16oz jig head with a willow blade and white grub tail. A ultra light spinning reel. Find a deep spot in the river. Then cadt across and drag it back very slowly. Expect to get hung up and lose some tackle.
Good luck to you.
