Horst has now ceased fishing as the yellows are in breeding mode and he will only resume fishing in abut mid-March if the rivers have cleared by then. Apparently, this last winter has been one of the best seasons ever.

In the meantime, there are plenty of farm dams with good bass and tilapia which may be fished during summer

Northern KZN

Carl Freese (083 2260810) says that the Tugela tributaries are very low and clear, but they are having good sight fishing in the deeper pools where the scalies are concentrated.

Midlands

Jan Korrubel of the Kingfisher in Maritzburg (083 9933870) notes that the Midlands rivers below the trout zone were fishing quite well this has probably come to an end with the heavy rain that is currently falling.

Southern KZN.

Because of the late onset of heavy rain the middle Umkomaas in the Richmond area is still fishing well but very heavy rain has been predicted for later this week which could put an end to the early summer season.
