Most lures are worked best on a slow retrieve worked back against the current so you're using the rip to help the lure wiggle and waggle

I think you'd have better luck if you cast up current and work the plug back to you with the current. Especially if your using darters and bucktails. You want the plug to be presented as naturally as possible. Most bait swims with the current not against it.
