This ain't gonna be what you want to hear from some guy in Alaska but...
I'm a Glass Half Full guy, there's always a silver lining type for sure and hears my take. There's no better way to learn forward anchor placement and a more vertical start point for the cast than a wading prohibition. I fish on occasion where it is counter productive to wade and so have learned how to cope. You learn how to create a very narrow D and to execute a very quick and sharp casting stroke shortened nearly by half due to not going over the shoulder by much. You could say that all my casting has been fashioned to fit into various environmental constraints encountered on these rivers. SO when they deliver lemons make lemonade.
Kill the hens you kill the river.
