    Before you judge a crazy, you should run a mile with their tackle box. That way, when you judge them, you're a mile away and you have their tackle box.

    Looks like the worst of it may have missed Adelaide at this stage..

    We will keep safe Adrian - safe inside, unlike crazy Tinker  
    I don't mind the rain either, it's the wind that messes everything up - hate the wind, wish that guy upstairs could cancel it out  
    From the Southport surfcam - 1 hour before the 9.30am (.99m) low tide.  High tide at 4.04pm today at 2.41m.
    Normally you would see a lot of the river bank at low tide, so the water isn't being allowed to drain due to the seas pushing it back in lol
    Currently the NW wind is blowing at about 32kph/17 knots (fresh) to the predicted 55kph/30 knots (gale) - weather forecasters

    It's certainly changed along the upper reaches of the Torrens River with so much of it being off limits which is a shame..
    I'm sure your mates would be happy to let you put some fingerlings in their dams..
    cheers

    Certainly doesn't look all that good.. depends on how much rain comes with it for the rivers/streams etc, the wind is going to be the main problem.. massive high tides too.. stay safe guys..

    Got waders and waterproof clothes but the wind could be a problem.

    Will be fishing low in the valley so hopefully it will only be heavy flow to worry about.

    Rain doesn't bother me too much and apparently it is better for catching trout.

    Thanks for the warning mate.

    Keen to see what this does for the creeks, streams and dams by Sunday.

    All I can think about is trout.

    The crazies, and I mean the real no hope in hell crazies, will be on the Pt Noarlunga jetty for the Salmon.
    But I wouldn't be surprised if the jetty, amongst others, will be closed by council.
    ps: I'm not a crazy 😂

    Torrens River will be flowing hard after the heavy rainfall predicted over the next few days.

    Checking out the spots above Kangaroo Creek Reservoir you recommended but I think SA Water has claimed them and they are now off limits.

    Looking at Mt Pleasant at the source of the Torrens downstream on Google Earth but everything above Gumeracha Weir is off limits.

    Thinking of buying some trout fingerlings and stocking some dams if my mates let me.

    Good place to live up here in One Tree Hill but we get nervous in bushfire season after the Sampson Flat fire a few years ago.

    Just came across this weather warning for SA an hour ago.. doesn't look all that good ..   Severe Weather Warning for damaging winds and abnormally high tides for people in Adelaide, Mount Lofty Ranges, Lower Eyre Peninsula, Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Mid North, Kangaroo Island and parts of West Coast and Murraylands districts. BoM: "A deep low pressure system centred south of the Bight will move eastwards to be near Kangaroo Island on Thursday morning and over western Victoria later in the evening. Strong to damaging northwest to westerly winds, averaging 50-65 km/h with gusts of 90-100 km/h, are likely to develop about western Eyre Peninsula later this afternoon, extending across the warning area overnight. Localised damaging wind gusts in excess of 90 km/h may occur about coastal areas and with showers and thunderstorms. Locations which may be affected include Adelaide, Port Lincoln, Whyalla, Cleve, Goolwa, Maitland, Murray Bridge and Kingscote. These conditions will cause sea levels to be significantly higher than indicated on tide tables on Thursday. Sea levels along parts of Spencer Gulf and Gulf St Vincent coastlines are likely to be at least half a metre higher than the highest astronomical tide of the year. At the Outer Harbor tide gauge, the sea level is forecast to reach around 3.5 to 3.8 metres mid to late afternoon on Thursday. This may cause sea water flooding of low lying areas and localised beach erosion. The State Emergency Service advises that people should: * Move vehicles under cover or away from trees; * Secure or put away loose items around your property. * Don't drive, ride or walk through flood water; * Stay indoors, away from windows, while conditions are severe." How is it looking in your suburb? Send 7NEWS Adelaide your weather videos: m.me/7NEWS Adelaide #7NEWS   Cheers  Adrian

    Really appreciate that mate.

    Fished bait up the Warren for a donut yesterday. Expected it coz it is very cold and the natives shut down this time of year.

    Fished Springbank today for a donut on bait but also put the waders on and fly casted a few wooly buggers at some carp and dropped a nice fish.

    Still learning fly fishing.

    Will be back up Corkscrew Rd next weekend with some spinners and small hardbodies to hopefully pin my first trout.

    Got some good rainfall predicted on Wednesday and Thursday and keen to see how it flows by Saturday.

    Thanks again for the heads up on that mate.

    Also got a BCF down the road from me at Elizabeth.

    Great place to visit but they keep having a 3 day sale every 3 days and bombard me with emails.

    They also sold me a Shimano Stradic ci4 for $200 when I nagged them.

    If only they could stock decent live freshwater bait like scrubbies and crawlers.

    Will keep nagging them.
