I'm with Roballen. Tough for me to give any insight, without knowing what the water looks like. If you have to go deep, there are methods to do so, ( i.e. cast directly across the river, big mend up, let sink with weighted fly as you take your steps down stream, swing, retrieve as you get close to the bank to keep off of the bottom, for example ) However, if there are boulders along the bottom, you will still get hung up, so adjust.
However, chances are you will not out fish, or keep up with the numbers, that the czech/euro nymphers are getting.
