Although the CPS River Festival that was planned for 25 to 27 October had a good number of entries this was virtually washed out by heavy rain and rivers in spate. However, rain is always welcome, and the result is that all the rivers are still in good condition for this time of year. Being December water temperatures are rising which may limit fishing to early morning or evening
As mentioned before the Witte River is still recovering from the drought 2 years ago but the Holsloot which has recovered from the massive landslide a few years ago is fishing well.
The warmer weather is also bringing the best of the fishing at Lakenvlei Dam to an end but recent reports indicate that the stockies are very active.
The club expects 100 to attend the year-end braai which will be held tomorrow evening.
