With the recent rain all the rivers have been in spate which has dirtied the estuaries. In any case fishing is quite slow over winter with only the odd grunter, kob or young garrick coming to the fly when it warms up and if one perseveres. I would reckon give it another 4 to 6 weeks and provided there is no further rain and with warmer water temperatures the flyfishing will certainly improve. In the meantime, most flyfishers are heading inland to the trout dams which are full and fishing extremely well.
