    Worms and sinkers, or dark or gold spinners.

      The only good thing about swift murky water is you can use heavier line.

        Fish the shallow eddies along the edge of the river.

          Very carefully.
          Seriously though all the above suggestions are good. If you are going with fly gear upsize the flies by a couple of sizes and go with beadhead flies if you have them. Darker is easier to see in murky water. Definitely fish in the eddies or in feeder creeks or creek mouths, backwaters if they exist on your river.
          If you have the option go rafting instead and fish the lakes until the river calms down. High rivers are damn dangerous.

            Fish the undercut banks where the current is not as strong. Trout are not going to sit in swift water to long waisting energy. Make sure to sneak up to the edges though they will get spooky. If fly fishing use streamers good for your a.o spin gold or dark castmaster or spinner

              Use dark or gold spinners for sure!
