Although the estuaries have cleared after the rains of early August and are now greenish in colour and not 100% clear they are fishable although it is only next month that the flyfishers start fishing them in earnest. Some smallish leervis (garrick) have been caught on conventional tackle but I believe by mid-October we will also be targeting kob, grunter and skipjack in the warmer water. In the meantime the majority of flyfishers are heading for the trout dams, the nearby Gubu and Maden dams and the trophy dams further inland.
