Club members of our local club, the Eastern Cape Freshwater Fish Conservancy have enjoyed good bass fishing at the Sand River Dam over the holiday season. Unfortunately, we have not been able to obtain yearling trout to stock this water for the last two years so it has reverted to a bass fishery in the meantime. Stocking with fingerlings is a waste due to heavy predation by bass.
Recently we were able to stock Bulk River Dam and van Stadens Dam with rainbow fingerlings. Many years ago Van Stadens was regularly stocked but then became silted up. Now that it has been dredged it has become suitable for trout again and we look forward to opening it for fishing within the next two years.
