Stam - In my opinion, there is no difference between river and lake water when it comes to depth finders. Basic grey line ability and more pixels to show clearer detail. One thing to consider, is that on the river, you will need to be able to run it in manual instead of auto. If you run it in auto, you might as well be using the cheapest finder out there because the only real information you will get is the depth. Somehow auto seems to show a lot of fish that are not there, moreso then when on a lake. Again, this is just my opinion

You could probably find fish, but I use mine just to find the depth and the structure. Its always creepy to be idling through very shallow water with solid red on the flasher and wondering if your gonna hit any wood. Late at night in the fog is even more fun!captain.gif

Flashers run in real time and in my humble opinion are perfect for the river. OK it's all that I have to:)
