My situation is about as bad. I have to drive several miles to the river and for about the last three months the river has been blown out with all the rain we are getting. Last week I finally broke down and asked a motel if I could borrow their pool....they said have it! I have to say what you see in a pool is far different than what's available to the eye in the river. If you can, test your baits in a pool, big difference!

I found the ole HOT TUB works great (on the lure and me). You can speed up the flow or slow it down .
