WHERE TO FIND THEM
In theory bass could roam anywhere into the newly accessible flooded areas. I have found a few variables to be relevant on most bodies of water, especially during the spawn.
I find that they will follow the rising water up. They will usually find the inside edge of some type of cover, whether it be a grass line or brush pile. They’ll usually try to get on the backside of that and move along the inside edge of the newly flooded cover. It may just be a small area but they will use it as an ambush spot.
I tend to find them in the flooded cover near creek channels and points, more often than I do in the very back of bays.

WHAT TO USE FOR HIGH WATER CONDITIONS
First I like to start with a weedless top water frog, like the V&M Bayou Bullfrog. It covers a lot of water and will find the active feeders. When I find a few active fish I will slow down, find the nearest cover and start flipping.
I prefer to flip and pitch a Yum Wooly Bug. Make sure to thoroughly pick apart the cover before moving on.
Just remember “When the water rises, the fish rise.”
