Default river question

i have been doing alot of research lately about reading rivers but there is still something i am still foggy about. the chatahoochee river, ga, is a very unique ecosystem. the river itself contains sections of flat flowing water, runs over high rocks, runs around fallen trees, sand bottom and rock bottom. what i am foggy about is flat flowing water (flat meaning there is really no ripples, no current around structures. smooth flat water, perfect for skipping rocks) what is the likelihood of trout (or any fish) being found in these smooth water flows ? there are still structures under the water but the water is a smooth constant current. i understand the oxygen, food, and safety needs of fish, which is why i have had good luck for runs or deep pools, but i have noticed lately that people have been catching fish in these smooth flows, which seems to be very contrary to what i read. any light someone can shed on this? (hope i didnt confuse anyone)
