With regard to Sterkfontein the message I received from David Weaver stated that with water temperatures in the dam were still in the low teens and sometimes down to nine degrees so the start of the yellowfish season is some way off still for this popular venue. Maybe late October if there are no serious cold fronts coming through from now on. The upper Wilge River above Harrismith is very low and below the town the it is heavily polluted with the town’s sewerage flowing straight into the river which apart from wrecking the fishing and the fish population will also further increase the pollution load of the badly compromised Vaal system.
