I have been watching the level of the water at inanda drop over the last few weeks , I thought this was normal for this time of year , but according to the water level web site it is very different to last year.

inanda 96.3%, last year this time 100%
alberts 72.8%, last year this time 100%
midmar 88.6% ,last year this time 99.5%
Not sure if the stats are accurate but if they are I think we may be in for some tough fishing and possibly water shortages if this trend continues .

That?s really interesting Warren... I only started fishing last year so I didn?t really pay attention to dam levels and things but I could have sworn that the dam looked different this autumn and your stats show that is the case!

You should have seen Alberts 4 years ago, the ridge that everyone fishes was a flippin mountain about 10m above the water line. I reackon within a months time the trees will be completely out of water.

I have heard that from some of the old dogs? it?s really interesting to go to my normal spots and actually see what has been hidden by water all this time? my problem is that this is now a whole new ball game again and old spots are no longer spots and previous kak spots are now hot spots? it?s going to take me 20 years to learn all this stuff about bass fishing? I just hope I can live for another 20 years! ;-)

You have to remember that last year (2006) most of the catchment areas saw more rain than they have in many years, resulting in the dams being a lot fuller than usual. Compare the levels today to what they were 4 years ago and I am sure you will see they are still very healthy. Wink
