I've had good luck with a Bomber 6A Root/Chart and a War Eagle finesse spinnerbait in mouse. I replace the blades with regular willows.

I generally throw...
Super fluke jrs
F2 craw papi (2.75" craw color)
a few blue fox spinners
And sometimes a rebel craw, but its normally too deep for it

Soft plastic craw on slider heads
Crankbaits (when the conditions are right)
but my all time favorite is a nose hooked 4" or smaller stickbait

This spring..river levels were up....About 50/50 1/2oz spinnerbait or a swim jig, both with a curlytail grub trailer
May-September. Drought conditions, hot, low gin clear rivers..I probably caught 90% of my fish on a walk the dog plug. Couldnt fish the bottom because it was covered in snot moss.
Last month..Rivers still low and clear. Suspending Jerkbaits were the ticket
From now till spring...Suspending Jerkbaits & Jigs, and hair jigs usually see the most action. Cranks if the water rises.
Good Luck.

Probably not really a river, but a creek that I fish in south central TN the only bait I carry is a rebel teeny crawfish, usually catch between 30-50 fish per trip. Not usually large fish but great fun and have caught up to 3 lbs.

This may be a new one, picked this up Catfishing on the Ohio River. Take your line and put a 3 way swivel on in. Tie a leader on the bottom end approximately 6" to 18" depending on your preferance and put a 1/4oz to 1/2oz sinker on the end. Small egg sinkers with gold loops make for easy attachment. A drop shot sinker works wonderfully too. Next tie the other leader roughly 6" to 12" out that will hold your bait. Dont make this leader too long or it will become difficult to feel the fish when they pick up the bait. As for lures, I have found that any bait that delivers a fluttering action in the current works great. I.E. twin tail grub, robo worm, small Zoom craw, any straight tail worm, or tubes. Cast up river or stream, and as the rig floats downstream the sinker will grab the bottom and the bait will flutter horizontally parallel to the bottom. If you can hit the edge of current breaks to where the bait barely flutters, it's a killer. With a drop shot or small egg sinker the rig will gradually float downstream usually keeping the bait fluttering just off the bottom or desired depth. You may have to experiment and adjust, but once you figure out where the fish are holding, HANG ON!!!

Good Luck!!!

I have had great success with a Jackall Cross Tail Shad rigged on a 1/16th oz. jighead with a large hook. Throwing it upstream and twitching/swimming it down river while gently reeling in the slack.
