    I dont do a whole lot of river fishing.. But been out the my wife's uncle several times and he is quite the river rat... The river we fish is pretty shallow... After he motored us into one of his spots and we tide off (motored right of the top of where we were gonna fish) he said it would be about 5 minutes before we would get bites as the motor may flush em out and then they would come back... Sure enough, almost 5 minutes on the button, bites started to come....Happened a bunch of times... Im sure your in much deeper water than we were, so I would think you'll be fine....

    Learn your way around the river a little more in that section, and you'll be able to motor around and above the hole to anchor. Then let out just enough rope to put you right on the hole.
