It has rained at last and Thrift Dam rose by 6ft but more rain is needed and the inflow to the dam has stopped flowing so everyone is hoping that more rain is on the way. With the inflow Thrift is fairly dirty but this should clear soon.There is no news from the Redcliffe area and although they have had some good falls the Tarka Rive is still not running.
Stormberg (Queenstown area)
QFFC chairman Reg Morgan (082 7033489) reckons that although good rain has fallen in the town (about 100ml) there has been no news from the farming districts where the trout dams are situated. Note that all the club dams are now closed for fishing until the end Of February by when it should start cooling down again.
Alan Hobson of the Angler& Antelope is overseas until early February but recently he has been concentrating on his catfish, bass and yellowfishing with the trout waters being low.
