Default Best rapala/rogue colors for clear water?

Hi Folks,
Looking for ideas of what colors shallow diver rapalas or rogues might work best in a clear water, deep canyon reservoir. I'm looking to pull them behind 3 ways.

Forage is threadfin & gizzard shad, crayfish and lots of small mouth and carp. Do walleyes eat smallies & carp? All the ones I've ever caught had mostly crayfish and some shad in them.

I know silver/black, chartreuse/silver and green firetiger usually produce here, but was looking for suggestions on maybe two or three other, must have colors that I might be missing-without having to break the bank on the myriad of available patterns.

I have a Floating rouge that is gold with gold glitter on the back that's one of my favorites.

In clear water, it is always tough to beat a blue body with a white belly lure.

I just went to Walmart and foud a box called the tresure chest that had all Rapalas for 4.96 compared to 8.79 for most minnow raps and some trolls to minnows. Most guys dont use the Rapalas up here in the river due to snags. I saved 30.00 yesterday. Ill be going there weekly to see what they put in there next. Just thought I would share the info.
