Have her try out one of your rods.

I'm thinking around 8.0' to 8.5' 4 weight depending on how much brush you need to deal with.

I wasn't sure if she might need a creek specific rod. If that's the case, you may want her to consider something as light as a 7.5' 3 weight with a medium to medium fast action. With her payloads being so light, she may not need a heavier rod.
