Even in dirty water, they will often surface to gulp air.  Where you see 'em, fish for 'em.  Blind casting in suitable areas sometimes scares up a few, but it's not your best option.  

Troll with a rope lure and a loose drag or limber rod.  Another option is drifting/slow trolling through the area with bait.

Go get 'em!

They'll find their way to a stationary bait pretty easily too... if you're bait fishing you can suspend cutbait or live shiners or whatever a few feet under a float and pick up bites just as well as you would in water with good clarity.
