    Hey Sandy, how are you doing?

    Just out of curiosity because I am a natural born nosey bugger, where is your new house if you don't mind me asking?
    Close to good fishing or not?

    That area gets both hot and cold doesn't it? I understood Orange can be chilly in winter.
    Only been in there once a long time ago. Good fishing in Oberon isn't it?
    You must be feeling well. You haven't changed since we first saw your picture. N

    It gets chilly out here in winter, as it snows in Orange we have some good spots for trout out at Ophir and Lake Canobolas. Not to mention a few back creeks as well. We also have great fishing at a few of the big lakes and dams as well :) We have a favourite spot about 10 minutes from home. It is running after all the rain we have had over the last week :) Haven't been fishing at Oberon yet. But have to say, we are spoiled for choice.
    I originally came from Queensland, I hate the heat. But we have had some seriously hot weather this year.
    I will look into changing my profile pic, just for you Noel lol

    I know the area, I might have been through Cumnock decades ago on one of my fossicking or shooting trips, can't quite remember. You're not far from Burendong that would probably still produce some good fishing or has the drought knocked the hell out of it?

    Good to hear that you are doing well.

    I haven't hear anything about Windemere, but Burrendong and Mookawar are really bad at the moment.
    My son went camping up there the other weekend with his mates, couldn't even swim :(
    Needless to say they only stayed one night, too hot

    In saying that though, we have had a few ripper storms come through this past week.
    It poured down Friday night. The creek beside my house has some water in it finally.
    If my son and I get our work done this week, we might get up and check them out next weekend :)

    Most of my spots up here are bone dry and the local dam (Fairbairn) near Emerald is down to 13% at the moment. As soon as the capacity increases, the bloody cotton farmers and coal mines deplete it again. All the efforts put into fish stocking programs are totally wasted if the water is taken away, but that fact is ignored by the decision makers.

    From what we are hearing up here, NSW may be finally taking notice of issues effecting the environment, especially waterways and not before time.

    Yes, and about time :) Every state should heed the need to look after our waterways :)
