You're going to want to buy anything with goretex pro shell.
I have the Patagonia Super Alpine jacket and it's a good one. I wear it fly fishing and also around town. I didn't want to buy a jacket that I could only wear fly fishing. Wearing a simms jacket to the office is kind of silly.
The proshell fabric is bombproof. I've stood waist deep in saltwater, downpours in winter, and summer rain storms. I like the fact that it's a great top layer and I can change up the base layers to have the perfect set-up for a ton of different conditions.
The second thing I'd mention is the hood set-up. Try a couple on and experiment with how the hood cinches up. One of the big reason I like the patagonia is that one that hood is locked in place I don't even notice it. When you're on the river and it's dropping buckets in the wind, you'd not going to want a loose fitting hood that ends up becoming a funnel for water going down your chest.
