Everytime I wade streams in the mountains the one thing I'm really thankful for is that I don't expect to see a cottonmouth face to face in chestdeep water,it's happened several times to me here in Mid. Tenn creeks,and they're aggressive for sure....and can bite underwater.
I'll face a rattler or copperhead anyday...and we have them here too.
