At last we have fresh water in the Manning River.
It as not as large as needed but at least it is a start.
The clear ocean water is running into the Manning on the rising tide so the fishing at Harrington could be back to normal soon.
However, the upstream waters will take quite a while to clear especially if we get more rain up the river.
At Harrington, not much is happening in the estuary but on the spit at Harrington Beach bream are biting well.
As the clear ocean water enters into the river on the run in tide, the bream will follow.
They will move up the river with the tide and back down the river as the tide runs out.
The seas were very big on Wednesday (February 12) and the beaches will take time after being flooded by the big seas.
