If it's only 3 to 5 feet deep, you technically don't need a sinking tip line or a sinking line if the current isn't heavy. I use quite a few streamer patterns. I will put up some links to a few that I prefer. Also, do you tie? If so... try these. They aren't that elaborate or difficult. If that water isn't moving and the weather is warmer, think top water. Deer hair frogs and deer hair mice popped on top will bring some explosive strikes.
Keep the tail at least 3/4 of an inch past the bend of the hook. This will give it better action.

Epoxy on some eyes on this fly also.
