    Monduran will reach 55% tonight (up 6.9m since the deluge began) and Awoonga has just gone past 77% (up 4.85m)....

    So far Mondy has had inflows in excess of 175,000ML and Awoonga 231,000ML!

    went for a bike ride above awoonga over the weekend an pretty well the creeks are flowing like crazy. could have jumped on a body board and travelled 4-5 km's before hitting the dam. everywhere up there heavy under foot, and good falls still continuing like trev was saying. wish it would stop, i gotta get fish out of the hatchery and into the dam in the next 2 weeks.

    What is this "Riding a Bike" you speak of Dave.......A JDW in one hand and swill does not pose a problem......most forms of riding have ceased apart from my Boat, which I have caught myself sitting in for no apparent reason......it's time IBD wise but not Mondy wise

    God forbid u don't get the fingerlings away within the 2 week period, what happens? excuse my ignorance.

    And, what can be expected if Awongee levels surpass the wall??

    Have not fished there but both questions make me shudder.

    Did you see the pics last year when Lake Moondarra overflowed? Kids taking monster barra home in prams and trolleys that had gone over the wall, and not landed particularly well.
    They put nets up at Tinaroo after heaps of large barra went over after one large inflow, not too sure how successful they were. Bottom line, without nets or something similar a lot of large barra will go over the wall. I have no idea on a percentage, don,t know anyone who really does, but a lot of fish will go over.

    Tinaroo has lost fish several times, but the incredible growth rates of impoundment barra means it doesn,t take long for them to be replaced by new monsters.

    In my opinion, a good flush probably causes short term pain and long term gain, imagine the baitfish in a full dam once it settles down.

    the fish will not be released into awoonga in any fashion that will affect survival rates in any way. the release of the fingerlings probably will not reach the dam wall in the positions selected, and secondly the barra fingerlings tend to move upstream in events of inflow, hence away from the dam wall (no real problem releasing fish in the middle of inflow - perfect example is every stocked area in the fitzroy basin in the past 2 years). the main issue lies with:
    1. the timing of release
    2. space available in the hatchery. remember we have had many years experience doing this, and have witnessed these fish from egg to release size (i know just about every fish that move in our tanks similar to that of everyone else in my position).
    it has been predicted that the dam will reach 38m by the weekend, and it would not surprise me if it goes further.

    yes the dam could do with a good flush in my eyes, and obvious there will be fish going for a cordless bungie, but more water in the dam equates to ore fingerlings released annually. no harm in that as i would think everyone would agree on.

    hope this gives you some more insight on fingerling habits and stocking activities. cheers

    Re: Mondy & Awoonga-How High?

    Hi Kurt, any fish released at the moment should grow like the clappers as the dam is overflowing with tiny bait fish. I've been out there at night lately and whenever you shine a light on the water it erupts with tiny fish showering out of the water. Most of these fish are still small enough for a baby barra to fit in his mouth so food shouldn't be a problem for them. If I can help in anyway with the release just give me a call.
    cheers scott.
