Default Newbie Question about casting in tight spots

Do any of you have any tips for getting line out in a small stream with lots of vegetation on the banks?

Generally where I have been fishing lately there is too much brush to do a full cast so I have been using a roll cast. However I have been having trouble getting line out in advance to make a decent roll cast.

I either tangle it in some of the brush, or it drops in the stream and gets carried swiftly downstream making my roll cast a little more difficult.

I still can manage a 20+ ft roll cast upstream but it comes back pretty fast in the swift current. I was just wondering if this is part of the joy of fishing small streams or if I am doing something wrong.
