Recommended line - tight creeks, small flies

I've got a Crystal River 8 1/2 foot graphite rod that is recommended for 6 - 7 wt line.

I'm looking for recommendations for fly line that is suitable for tight creeks (lots of trees and vines everywhere) where I'll be doing a lot of roll casting using very small flies.

What line weight do you recommend? Can I go one size smaller than what is recommended on the rod or should I stick to their 6 - 7 wt recommendation?

Is weighted forward the only way to go or is double tapered also acceptable for roll casting small flies?

Any brand recommendations would also be appreciated. Price is sort of important, but quality is more important.
