With Cyclone Alfred fizzing out and heading away from the Top End rather than across it, we are now entering one of those windows in the wet season that I have written about before.
According to the Bureau of Metrology, conditions should be fairly dry for at least the next week; ie there is no active monsoon expected for the time being.
Mind you, as far as the big rivers go, there is water, water everywhere, but at least you can go barra hunting in pleasant conditions.
Remember too that this coming weekend... (more)
“We’re definitely going to have a March Runoff” were the prophetic words of Fishing and Outdoor World’s George Voukolos.

Publisher, Alex Julius, said: “The whole of Northern Australia is well covered with sport and reef fishing features from both North Queensland and WA, including... (more)
There’s been some terrific widespread rain over the last week and it’s done the trick for all our major tidal rivers.
I heard Magela Creek was 1.2m over the road early this week and all three Noulangie Creek causeways on the Kakadu road were flowing right up to the top of their banks.
So both the East Alligator and the South Alligator Rivers are rising, and that’s great news.
Perhaps the biggest news is what happened down from Shady Camp at the mouth of Sampan Creek on the Mary River... (more)
