Flyfishing report: Yellowfish - East Free State

Date of Report: Monday, 11th September 2023
Name: David Weaver
Phone: 083 303 4230

The sudden increase in daytime temperatures got some of us in the northern provinces a bit to optimistic about the prospects at Sterkfontein. But a report from David Weaver states that he was at the dam on both Saturday and Sunday last weekend, the water temperature was still 14°C and they never saw a fish. It takes some time for the water in a very large and deep reservoir which lies at high altitude to warm up. Guess it will take a few more weeks and more warm weather before the yellows get moving.


Sterkies – early season.
