We have had plenty of rain along the coast but very little in the catchment areas inland for our dams. When the cold front moved through we had to cancel our club outing to Thrift as they predicted snow and maximum temps of 3°C.

The brown trout from KZN arrived but instead of 5g they were only 1g which makes them very susceptible to crab and platanna predation. We therefore sent them up to the Ventnor hatchery to on some weight before being released in the Van Stadens Dam which has been dredged and is ready for stocking.

Our club AGM is tomorrow at the German Club.
