After an excellent winter and early spring Horst has ceased fishing as the small and largescale yellows are moving into breeding mode and he does not wish to disturb the spawning activity.
In the meantime, there is good bass and tilapia fishing in the many farm dams in the area.
Carl Freese (0832260810) of the Tugela fishing Company says that the Tugela tributaries and the main stem of the river offer good sight fishing opportunities for scalies (Natal yellowfish) as the water is clear and the warmer temperatures has increased feeding activity.
Jan Korrubel (0839933870) states that he has had very few yellowfishing reports, but conditions should be excellent in both the Bushmans and Mooi and other Midlands rivers below the trout zones.
Karl Adensgaard reports that the middle Umkomaas is looking really good at the moment and scalies are moving into the shallow water and rapids and there have been good hatches in the evenings.
There have also been reports of good catches of scalies in the lower Umzimkulu on privately owned land.
