Although the shad season is closed we have had plenty at Mapelane and Vidal so if you want to go for catch and release there are lots to catch at these two venues, but fewer at St Lucia. However, the last few days it has been blowing too hard for fly fishing and of course it is quite cold. Otherwise there have been some small black tip kingfish at Mission Rocks.
The lake of course is dropping, and the canal that was excavated at great cost to divert the Umfolozi into the estuary is almost completely silted up. In any case the Umfolozi is now dry so once again the town has a water problem.
