Eastern Free State

Last month I mentioned that some very good trout came out of the Waaihoek Dam. The property is about 10km out of Clarens on the Bethlehem road. However, to be able to fish there one must be an overnight visitor and stay in one of the chalets. There has been no news about the Klein Caledon although it appears to be recovering from the drought of 2 years ago. Otherwise, apart from the Ash River which no longer seems to have trophy sized fish but can be relied on for medium sized trout there has been very little fishing done.

The Townlands Dam at Clarens has not been restocked this year due to lack of funds in the club kitty.

As can be expected, most of us are waiting for Sterkfontein Dam to warm up to get the yellows on the move again.

Lesotho report from Keith at Tourette.

We have had some spring rain to keep the Bokong River running and conditions look better than they were in the last couple of years at this time. Seems we are getting closer to pre 2015 season if this winter, and the 2nd half of the 2020 summer are anything to go by. As the season at Makhangoa Community on the Bokong River usually opens around the 20th November.
