With flooded water levels the fish are more spread out. However, they still look for the same things consistently. Cleaner water, elevation changes, places to hide and bait. If you can find a solid combination of those things, you should find the fish.
Example: Just because you see flooded grass doesn't mean the fish are there...rather look for flooded grass next to something of structure or cover. Fish wont just chill on a grass flat. They prefer to ambush. Fish will result to what they know. Sure they will go scout out new water, but they will come back to their main "area" consistently. I've noticed the cleaner the water, the better the fishing. Maybe something you should look for.
With the dam releases, lot of "non current" lakes (most lakes in the area are non current lakes) are hard to fish when water is being let out. Try to fish the times around when the gates are open. Just a few ideas for you. But like Ranger stated...cheap graphs for $80 can be found and will help you a lot!
