We had a weekend’s fishing in the river below VDK dam. Unfortunately, the clarity was not that good, being a bit milky and poorer than it had been in January. As expected, the level varied considerably depending on the releases from the dam and this plus the lack of clarity had a negative effect on the fish although we did net a few

Lower Vaal

As reported last month the lower Vaal in the Windsorton area is in very good condition with excellent clarity and good catches of smallmouths.

Riet River

Between Douglas and the junction with the Vaal this river is low, but nice and clear so fishing conditions are good provided one uses a careful approach.
