Do any of you all have a general idea of how long post-rain water continues to rise before it starts to drop? Of course there are many variables (amount of rain, water shed, pulling water or not, etc) to this but considering a day with moderate to heavy rain (1-2) inches, I generally assume water still rising through the following day, and for that reason, may plan to flip flooded bushes. 2 days post rain, maybe I will plan on backing off of bushes with falling water levels. I have no idea, if this is right but that's how I think of it.

Thoughts?

The time of year and how muddy the water gets are significant factors.
Several strategies work, but there are some generalizations that hold true most of the time.
Less than 2 feet of visibility, fish shallow flooded isolated cover.
More than 5 feet of visibility, early after a rain, the deep end/dam area will have the most stable water. Bass like stable water.
Do your fishing where the food/bait fish etc. is located.

It really depends on the amount of rain and the type of lake you are talking about. Does it have a morning glory "gate", spillway or dam with gates that need to be opened. Those all factor in to how long it will be on the rise. And 1-2" of rain won't be much of a rise for any lakes around here regardless.
