    either or. Just modify retrieve speed based on which direction you are going. you can also cast cross current. The fish will be facing up current but a lure coming past them from down stream can be hit.

    I would retrieve it going with the current because it will be in from of the fish. Also from my experience fly fishing is the best way to fish a river because of the current but that's just my opinion.
