Albert Falls has been particularly kind to the carp anglers.

News from our Jan, The Kingfisher in PMB: “From snow to 30°+ in the space of a week, it would appear that summer has come flying in past any hint of spring.

“The early rains are also most welcome to get over the dry spell of winter, and to get some moisture into areas that have had their winter burn off.

“Current conditions on the rivers remain low, clear and warm (14° to 15° Celsius) so we wait (im)patiently for the main rains to get the flow rates up and the fish moving, especially on the upper reaches. The middle to lower sections will have holding water, and some better fish have been reported in these stretches. There is some rain in the current forecast, so hopefully that falls in the catchment areas which will send the water down.
