Tony, we're all in the same boat with the high water and the strong currents. I have found that fishing near shore, and sometimes with jig in the weeds has been productive. I used this on the Wisconsin at Nekoosa, and below the Petenwell Dam.
I also have found that fishing whereever a current break is is productive IE. Bays, Swirles, little barely visible indents in the shoreline.
Make sure you match the Jig size to the current so you can reach bottom. And forget the small bait, go with the bigger stuff like 3-4 inch rubber or live minnows. Give the fish something that they'll want to taste.
