News from our Jan, The Kingfisher in PMB: “The sprinkler system appears to be taking a bit of a rest — for the moment — some drops still to be seen in the current forecasts, but nothing like the previous deluge(s). What is here, however, is still very much in full force, so rivers are blown out and some stillwaters are just plain inaccessible.

If the wet conditions continue to taper, we will have some excellent fishing shortly … autumn will be awesome. That being said, there was already a nip in the morning air this week. Madame Winter is already on her way, and with all the water around, it might be a proper cold one!

As mentioned previously, the talk of the town is whether Albert Falls might actually see full supply level (FSL) this season, and it’s sure headed that way, lifting 11% over the last week, bringing it to just over 90%. The bass anglers are having a field day, with some excellent reports of good bags coming to hand on a variety of lures, including both top and in-water.
