Flyfishing report: Trout - Port Elizabeth

Date of Report: Wednesday, 10th July 2024
Name: Brian Clark
Phone: 082 537 3285

Our local club, the Eastern Province Freshwater Fish Conservancy, will be holding its AGM at the German Club starting at 19h00 on the 15th August. Brian after serving for many years as chairman will be standing down.

Our two local trout dams, Upper van Stadens and Bulk River have been overflowing strongly and as happens during winter rains many fish may have been lost downstream. Due to damage to roads, it is currently difficult to visit these dams.

The club outing to Gubu last month was not a success on account of very bad weather but the booking for the outing to Thrift next month is good.

2nd Thrift Dam outing
