I use the water in my water pan, but I'm hot smoking when I smoke fish. If you're cold smoking fish - drying it out to preserve it, then you're talking low temps, long time and no water.

Well I don't smoke fish as I'm not a fish person, but most of the water pans are used for different things. I use mine s a great heat shield against the firebox & keep temps regulated. What kind of smoker do you have? That would help alot
