The river bottom is boulder and rock strewn in most places, and once you get a signal, move a couple of rocks out of the way, it exposes the river bottom, which is mixture of smaller rocks, sand, pebbles, etc. There's a pretty decent current; rings hit the bottom and either get caught in a crevice between rocks, or what seems to be more likely, find their way to the river bottom and start working their way in.

Definitely can't use a scoop, or even a hand trowel or digger--the best thing is to start moving rocks, pinpoint, then start fanning. I wear a scuba mask/snorkel so I can see what I'm doing, and also use a waterproof pinpointer.

In certain areas where there are lots of big rocks and the current is too heavy to use a detector, my digging buddy uses his pinpointer only--he sticks it in between the rock crevices, and occasionally finds a good ring just doing that.

Yes, I get the nulls. One place we hunt has a gigantic logging chain stuck in the river bottom, that causes a big section to null out.N/T
