Lower Vaal & Orange.

Last month the main complaint was the heat which meant that fishing during the midday was very unpleasant. Since then, we have had a marked drop in temperature and heavy rain over the last few days which will adversely affect visibility for the next week or so. But prior to this the fishing on the lower Vaal and the Orange in the Hopetown area was very good.

Riet River.

Last month the river was very discoloured where the national road crosses it and with the recent rain I do not think the clarity will have improved.
