I have not fished the Orange for some time, but I hear that below VDK the water is quite clear and that on warmer days they have been taking smallmouth yellows on dries in the afternoon.

Lower Vaal

We visited the river in Windsorton area last weekend ago and found it to be clearer than it has been for years. Our aim was to target largemouths in the deeper water but without a boat we drew a blank as we could not reach the best spots and we believe the barometer was on the low side that day. Our intention is to return soon with a boat to improve our chances.

Riet River

The lower river is low and very clear. As this river has a good head of largemouths it is worth a visit now.
