This might not be a good photo, but it is a great example of where to look for fish when the river rises. The rock pictured here will hold a variety of fish when the river rises.

Notice the space under the rock. Fish will anchor themselves right in there to escape the current.

Once again drifting live bait into the current break is a good way to catch anything that might be holding tight to the rock. Boats or bank fishermen should cast lures above the rock and retrieve them back down stream.

Another method is to cast downstream and let the lure swim up into the current break, pause, then retrieve it. If the fish aren't active, you'll need to get your bait right in the fishes face because they may not chase it unless they're active.
