Wiktionary (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/highwaters <https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/highwaters>, informal) has this word but it’s not in the English Oxford Living Dictionaries.

Ken Cannon uses the word at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh1fQbLQx6w <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh1fQbLQx6w>, about 2:19 in.

I was surprised to learn this is still in use.
