Lower Vaal

I went fishing the weekend on the Vaal in the Windsorton area with a friend. I did not expect much activity as the water temp was 10°c and with a clarity of 1metre which is good. We opened the season with a good start as we caught enough fish to keep us busy for a splendid day on the water. This was definitely above expectations.

Riet River

The Riet is very low and clear but with an abundance of grass.

Orange (Hopetown)

The river is low but as normal but low visibility but apparently well downstream in the Richtersveld the clarity is very good. Have not fished the water this season.
