worm in such conditions, denending on how fast you are trolling of course.
I used to do this when I was float fishing a favorite reservoir out west, as I was kicking to my favorite trout hole in the lake anout 1/2 mile form the launch.
I would have one rod out as described above... Often times with a live crawler, others with a rubber worm, and another rod with a water filled float clear float and a trailing wooly bugger fly. This would ride the fly about 4-6 feet below the surface.
I caught some of my nicest largemouth bass, channel cats and trout on the worm using this setup, and lots of nice trout, panfish and crappie with the fly.
It was a slow troll, but it sounds like something you could easily do from a kayak on the lakes you describe, with little chance of snagging stuff too.
