Help us out a little bit. Are you talking Maine or Alabama, rivers, lakes or flowages? If you're north of the Mason-Dixon line I'd say probably a tip-up would be your likely answer. If south and on a lake or flowage, then something that can be fished exceedingly slow. Something like a Clouser minnow would work, but you'd need to barely move it. Location of the fish is critical as they're not likely to move much to the fly. Also using something softer as the wing material on your Clouser, which usually calls for bucktail, would help. Arctic fox and Ultra Select Craft Fur are what I use on mine for such conditions. Actually, a wooly bugger, properly weighted, could also be nearly suspended the same way.
