DULLSTROOM

According to John Hunter of the Village Angler the fishing has been extremely slow. Although one expects this in February the Dullstroom area has had extremely heavy rain which has brought the water temperatures down so it is probably due to repeated low pressures moving through with the thunderstorms. However, the good rains and lower temperatures bodes well for the autumn season. In the meantime, the local dirt roads are in poor condition so it is worth checking with the destination before one ventures on these roads.

At the TFFC’s waters at Middelpunt stocking will be resumed on 19 March and another batch of grass carp will be released from the rearing cages this weekend. More information is at www.tffc.co.za.

The participants for the Masters World Championship have arrived and are already practicing on the local waters and at Nooitgedacht near Lydenburg. The competition will commence mid-week next week and waters to be fished will include Town Dam, Jansens and the Lochs. 6 international teams will be competing.

MACHADODORP GLENSHEE

This club which was one of the more successful in the past is battling to keep going. The club still has very good waters and a production unit which produces trout for its dams. Anton Henning, the new chairman, who is without a doubt well qualified for the job has our best wishes for success. Anton may be contacted at 082 6136519 or antonw.henning@gmail.com

SABIE

According to club chairman, Werner Wessels (0836771307), the river has been running well now that the very dry, hot spell is over. However, this weekend the Round Table will be holding a river race on the Sabie with about 1000 people attending so anglers are requested to head for te upper section where there is 4km of river available.
