News from Jan at The Kingfisher in PMB: “The upstairs sprinkler system continues unabated, as noted in a recent report: “We are getting our normal summer rains, but with the La Niña, it is all enhanced.”

La Niña is the warm, wet little sister of El Niño which gave us the hot drought conditions from 2015. As is usually the case, it’s boom or bust, and for some anglers making it out there, there have been booms. For other caught in the weather maelstrom, it’s been a bust. So with this second report of 2022, we can safely say that there is a “lotta watta” out there!

In the last report I mentioned the waters have benefitted immensely from the recent rains. Albert Falls, the largest dam in KZN, over 80% full, with a great expectation it will reach full capacity this season!
