Default river condition?

I was planning on going out for some cats Friday night after work, haven't had a chance to check to condition after all the rain. Any opinion on if it is even worth going out.
Thanks

More water has never hurt my odds with cats no matter what others may say. It just makes it harder to tell where the edges of the current are.

Fish have to eat even in high water, but the high water makes fishing more difficult.

Personally, I'll be waiting a week or two especially on the kayak. The fish scatter and are harder to find.

Catching a buzz at the tavern would be the route I would take. You can't go wrong with Captain & sunkist, and after a couple the chicks generally get better looking!

I like your style! I think the storm tonight is going to scare me away.
