    Re: The Milky Condamine

    Yes, John, I have viewed the site. Very interesting.

    I live 20 minutes south of Toowoomba and we only got 14.5 mm rain from yesterdays falls, but I see Warwick got 26.6 mm. According to the weather bureau Warwick has had 32.6 mm this month with 90.4mm evaporation and in January had 78.8mm with 208.6mm of evaporation! How does that work? Is it evaporating out of the rivers & creeks? Toowoomba has had 59.6mm for Feb and 55.6mm for Jan. I have had 73.5mm this month. Not brilliant falls for this time of the year, but better than the last few months last year. More to come, hopefully.

    Regards Eleanor

    Ive been watchung the radar today, Sure hope it is as good down your way as it looks.
    I checked the BOM Condamine River Heights Bulliten and there are rises in the river and some tributaries all thru the inner Downs. Hope it amounts to a decent flow

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    I live at Pittsworth and often go out to the yarramolong weir. The water dosnt take long for it to clear up after a fresh, about two weeks or so.
    I have fished the condermine at condermine and have wondered why it is so milky.
    Just south of the township of condermine on the surat road is a lagoon. It is also milky and full of yellas I am told. I havnt fished there myself.
    I know a guy that went there a few years back and filled a heshion bag in a few hours.
    Maybe I might go out and have a go, seems I now got a broken ankle.(thanks to my violent neighbours)

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    news on tv said we had about 40mm here in warwick in an hour yesterday, looked about right.

    river got high enough to cut a few roads off so it all helps.

    cheers

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    HKCONC, good to hear that the river clears up up your way and yes there are some great lagoons sth of Condamine town.
    I fished below that little town all my childhood and a lot since with my Dad. Great fishing over the years.

    Hearing these reports of rainfall is encouraging. Hopefully ther will be enough water to flow out to Dalby. Then if there is another set of good falls we might get some to go right thru.
    Cheers

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    Wambo creek just north of the crossroads was flowing begining of the week went over it on the way homethis arvo and it is starting to clear by the looks so as it has been said on this post it looks like it clears up after a good flow. Thats the problem i guess its been very dry here for a long long time so after some decent rain and as long as we get more we might see it clean again then maybe i can get my lures out and dust em off LOL

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    The yarramalong weir is over flowing once again for the past week. About a 1.500m fresh again. They had good rain around allora about a week ago.
    Might be time to drop the tinny in again.
    I guess the cockies will have to start their pumps up some day. They got to make a living some how.

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    I wish I was down there to see all this .

    I am living in Cairns at present but have been talking to my DAD at chinchilla and it pelting down at present all over the Downs. BOM site is saying major flooding already beginning from Surat down and also the site shows condamine river rises around Dalbly to chinchilla at present. Great News!

    Please keep up the reports

    Hi! Rossco,

    Bit wet out there? Great stuff, hear the roads are closed in places.

    Good to see the old river get a run. Wonder how far the water will get before it is pumped our or diverted.

    Have Fun Haji-baba
