A few Smithwick Rattlin Rogues (suspending and flaoting), Bandit 100 series cranks (Limetruese, Rootbeer and Chrome/black are great colors for me) and BPS Magnum Flippin tubes are my top producing baits for smallies.

I fish on the Snake River with depths similar to what you are describing.  I fish with bandit series 100.  White is a really good color for me.  I also do a lot of dropshotting.  I use finesse worms, 4in lizards, and 4in trick sticks (from *).  This past year I started dragging a T-rigged * (from *) and did quite well with it.

A small river like that, I'd start off with 3" curly tail on a 1/8 oz. ball head jig. Then move on to a Tx rigged 4" Senko. If these don't produce, try a Fat Ika reverse rigged. Cast upstream and let your offerings drift back into a pool, until parallel to the current then twitch it back. If hangups are not a problem, you might go with a wacky rigged Senko. Good luck!

  I agree with my friend Rich; hook an Ika just behind the skirt with a 1/0 hook. Works very well in a river system.

I catch a Ton of smallmouth ticking the bottom rocks and cover on bandit 300 series crankbaits ... trolling them

i used to believe color mattered until i started breaking off crankbaits and jsut went with whatever odd color i had .. when trolling i guess its reaction more than color cuase they bite them all :)

drifting tubes is great as well

I like the BPS tender tubes in silver & black, zoom Fat Albert salt & pepper grub, and the Fat Ika.
