So with all this rain in Texas, how do you deal with fishing high water? First, do not be intimidated. What it takes is rigging a lot of poles with different baits and just flat covering water. I like to avoid freshly muddy water. Muddy water in general is no problem; it’s just bad if it just got muddy in the last day or so. I also try to go in to it with no preconceived ideas; in other words, it can all be good, so just explore, explore, explore with a variety of techniques, and have fun with it. It will definitely be different than the last few years, but fishing high water can be very rewarding!
