Eastern Free State

We have had tons of rain over the last week which has broken the drought. The Klein Caledon is running high and muddy and the dams are filling. The Ash river is also flowing again. This is after the tunnel bringing water from the Katse was closed for a month for servicing. This is a puzzle as the Katse Dam is extremely low. Otherwise the yellowfishing at Sterkfontein has been good and it does not look as if they have opened the sluices yet. Apparently, this was on the cards as the Vaal Dam was low but possibly the recent rain has made this unnecessary.

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 today. According to Keith Clover there has now been enough rain to get the Bokong River flowing well so they can expect the yellows to commence their annual migration from the Katse Dam and up the river to spawn.
