Poolburn Dam was bult in the Great Depression. It supplies irrigation water to farmers further down the Ida Valley. Spent three days here, getting up early to catch the sunrise. It is reasonably high, near the top of the Rough Ridge. I can see how it got that name. No snow at this time of the year but could be cold and miserable in the middle of winter I am sure.
I said in the video that there were about 20 cribs or fisherman’s huts but that is wrong, probably nearer 40. It is about an hour and a quarter out of Alexandra depending on which way you go.
