Reservoir virgin!

So I've been prebaiting the last few weeks, in preparation for the weekend. 

As the water level has dropped at least 12 ft since I joined, there are various rocks, tree stumps, clams, etc. that are causing me great concern that if I get a take I am likely to get cut off😏

So I am thinking hydro tuff line and only fish a few wraps out to minimize the risk. 

Thoughts and recommendations gratefully received 👍

My first thought would be to take plenty of photo's and draw some maps showing where the snags are so you can avoid them when the level returns. A whole day spent doing that would probably pay off long term rather than sat behind the rods all day. That said, snags are fish magnets so fishing close to them could pay off but obviously wrapping up now would give a false reading when the levels increase and the bank retreats, so wrap to a fixed location like a boundary fence if possible. Plumbing should also be easier if it's 12 foot shallower and now is the time before the autumn rains come. Look along the bank for any depressions or smooth areas that fish would seek out and map them. I would definitely be looking at margin fishing and prebaiting would almost certainly accelerate their acceptance of the bait and the area as a safe place.

Ive put hydrotuff through its paces for 2 years and it hasn't let me down yet, great line 

Sounds like a challenge that place, I can't really advise much otherwise other than enjoy it 🤣
