Having been face to face with a few ... I would agree that is a Cottonmouth. The head is a little hard to see but the shape of the head looks like one. But I could be wrong.

This is 100% a Diamondback Watersnake. No if and or buts.

Plenty of clear exmaples

The side stripes are a pretty good give away. The yellow on the lower jaw is another. I currently have two of these in an aquarium at home I caught last weekend. Going to release them tonight probably.
