G'day northern folk, Adzee from poor ol down south. Been watching your wet season buildup like a hawke due to a planned venture north for the run off. Yep I'll be one of those annoying tourists choking up your waterways. Geez dry start thus far with not a lot on the horizon in the coming couple of weeks. I've always been intrigued with what you guys do with a fizzer of a runoff. Clearly I'm putting in place a potential plan b if the jabiru region is as dry as a nuns nasty this year. I'm clearly not asking for spot x's but just a general plan of attack. Do barra tend to hang on the coastal fringes still due to the fact that there's been poor fresh flows to trigger migration upstream? I'm unfamiliar with barra behavior so I'm keen to understand what they do.

Without a monsoon there can still be good regional rain, just have to pick the region that gets the most. But the lower parts of rivers might be best if the Wet doesn't happen.

As Matt says, been getting sporadic storms in some areas, i believe Katherine has been getting a bit lately which will have some impact on the Daly region.

Daly has been going up n down like a brides nightie this wet. So far the highest was 6m usually we are looking at about 10m and rising this time of year so it's not looking good for numbers of juvenile baz to make s go of it on the floodplains so far ....

Best seasons are a few years after the usual ripper wet seasons we used to have.

Goldfishes comments are spot on re juvenile baz. Which means a poor season in 2 -3 yrs time

But all is not lost there are still good numbers of fish older than that in the river systems up here. So it's not all doom n gloom as we usually have a ripper rainfall in feb or the possibility of a good cyclone to top it up for the runoff.... but time will tell. We generally don't want the destruction of a cat 5 but a cat 3 sweeping the entire topend about 100km offshore would be perfect.

Hope we get some good rain soon for the local culverts all of my gear is fully serviced and spooled up with new braid waiting for action.

It needs to start raining right now and not stop until late March for any chance of a decent runoff. Can’t see it happening.

I reckon it will be a good wet. Doesn't matter when the wet starts, it's the length of time it goes for. Rains well into April isnt unusual and if this happens then it wont matter if the 1st monsoon was a few weeks later than last year.

True mate, as long as the cold snap doesn’t hit before the runoff kicks in properly. Nice bit of rain today, good for the Finniss and Mary catchments.

The Finniss on the Litchfield road was at 1.8m eight hours ago. Would be higher now. That’s what we want!
