Simple answer?

Get a double taper line ... probably one up from the rods line rating. I've also heard that the SA 'steelhead taper' is a good close in working line. have a few places I fish on the upper Rogue that at low water conditions (now) a regular spey line is over kill as the fish will be sitting almost at your toes. Ergo, on goes the DT.

But, given DT lines are cheaper than dirt, as compared to many others (and you can just use a 'regular length' one handed rod line for this work) your not 'bucks up' buying one..
