Find a good point(slow taper with big drop off into the channel) and throw a carolina rig until you find them.

OR

Find some rock bluff banks that have deep water on them and throw your jig and pig.

OR

Throw a crankbait that will run at the depth the fish are holding and reel it SLOW....

im good at cold water....what i would do is similar to what FBL said, I would take a carolina rig with probably a purple/white worm and throw it on bluffs as FBL said, or take a texas rig and throw it in coves where warmer water is, around stumps and grass edges.

Just about anything you throw, you will want to slow it down....but with it being close to spawn, start out with some big plastics and big wobbly crank baits too.... ;D

Cold Water above 50 deg or below?  I am fond of jerkbaits & plastics when water is approx. 48-52 deg.  in the N.W.  

My only advice is to remember the bass will be moving back and forth from approx. 12-15ft of water up to the coves.  Find the trenches using your electronics and follow them (casting of course)up to the coves/bays.  The most important factor I have found is the time of the day the bass decide to move up.  You can fish a spot for two hours not catch the first one.  When the temp's are right the bass will move up then back to the depths.  So hit a spot several times a day if you think they will be there.  Also remember when water temp's reach 50 deg's the crawdads expose themselves.  Try crawdad colors.
