Severn River - Qld
« on: December 19, 2010, 10:27:11 PM »
Here's some pictures from a recent fishing trip on the Severn River - Qld.

Access was from a public access point, travelling via kayaks down river to the harder to get at places. There was a bit of a flow in the river which made moving up & downstream possible, would be walking only if there's no flow.

Biggest cod as 65cm which isn't too bad for this river.

Have a couple of hours of video footage from the trip which I might edit together if there's interest.

Cheers,

fitzy..

No worries Steve, hoping to do a couple of trips down into Sundown from the Ballandean side, will keep you posted.

Yep, bottom end of Broadwater end of Sundown NP.

Would only do it if there's a flow, & only a small flow. A bigger flow could be dangerous.  :walkplank

Video I have shows the terrain much better, but its all too big for youtube. Might have to dump it onto a DVD.

Cheers,

Is that flow you mentiond all natural runoff or released from a dam ?

2 inches of rain is keeping the "scenic rim" beaudesert shire rivers and creeks up pretty high and none managable.

All natural flows Steve. Can be quite variable, from none to flash flooding, all depends on rainfall upstream of the gorge.

There's some video on the Sweetwater youtube page to give a quick idea of some of the country. Have a couple of hours worth of footage here...

Good report Fitzy, I've only fished the Severn at one of the private properties in the gorge section, and for one reason or another never got back. Looks like a New Years resolution coming up. Love fishing that skinny water.
Cheers,
JD
