Eastern Free State

Trout fishing is at a standstill except for a few small ones coming out of the Ash River which is the outflow from Katse Dam. The Klein Caledon is still too discoloured for fishing and in fact there have been no reports of trout being caught in this river in the last couple of months. The yellowfishing season has been fair at Sterkfontein Dam but not as good as previous years possibly because the fishing pressure has increased substantially due to the poor condition of the mid-Vaal.

The most popular place for yellowfishing amongst the locals is the Liebenbergsvlei River below the Saulspoort Dam (now called Sol Plaatjie Dam).

Lesotho report from Keith at Tourette.

Due to the very dry conditions in Lesotho the opening of the fishing season at Makhangoa Community was postponed until December 1. According to Keith Clover there has now been enough rain to get the Bokong River flowing well and they have had excellent yellowfishing with the odd trout in the catches.
