Orara river from Karangi to Coramba

Think the bass might be downstream a litlle :idiot: . I know they use floods to travel upstream but man this was no ordinary flow, it was quicker than my wife at a 50% off sale at K Mart. Take a close look at the entrance point onto Hartleys bridge! The flow was so strong it stripped the bitumen off the rocks and left a 3 foot deep hole . :cry:

I live close to that bridge.

Karangi had between 17 & 18 inches on Sunday & Monday.

I had a chat to the landowner there a few weeks ago & he advises that the old bridge will be replaced with a new timber one this year.

Good to hear a new bridge is on its way Yanta. I have been bashing about through this area for 30 years, owned 4wd Discovery Tours for 8 years so I got to explore alot of the systems that feed into the Orara. I hope you got out of it unscathed mate.

Is there many Bass up that far?
I grew up at Glenreagh and the fishing was really good but never fished south of Nana Glen.
That was 15 years ago would be interesting to see how it has changed, really hoping to move back to to Coffs in the next year or so.

Thanks Snow,

It wasn't the heaviest rain that I've experienced but the wind did a lot of damage. I had powerlines knocked out on Sunday morning then the power went out again @ 10pm on Sunday night for about 14 hrs.

Heaps of fallen branches and about 1000 palm fronds to pick up but that's the price you pay to live in paradise.

The creeks need the fresh water, particularly Bonville & Pine so we'll see how it goes for fishing.

My rainwater tank ran dry for the first time in four years just before that rain so it has been very dry.

Yanta.
