I use very large all Chartreuse jigs tipped with stinky prawn bags in these conditions, sometimes I add a pink worm tail as well. If you are dealing with a bait ban then obviously these conditions are tougher, as scent becomes your friend in the high and dirty.
As someone else mentioned, the amount of good holding water in these conditions is shrunk down to much less water so locating fish is almost easier.
One last key to high and dirty = side channels, if you even remotely think it is enough water to hold a fish it can.
Hooked this one the other day in high off colored water in a side channel using the all chartreuse jig with the prawn bag, right after my buddy and 2 others fished it with just bait, then ended up handing out charteuse jigs to the lot of them, my buddy hooked 1 a few casts after with the jig I gave him. The all Chartreuse has been hot for anglers this early season with all this water, give er a try.
