best lures for high water

  1. So I went to the olentangy last night right after the rain and the water was quite a bit higher and faster. I cast a black buzzbait for a while and got only one hit. I've never fished swollen rivers/creeks and was wondering about some ideas for lures or if it's even worth fishing them. Also do you think the water will be back down by tomorrow (obviously it depends on the amount of rain we get today). I also lost that buzzbait to a treefish but it was a big one.:)
