We had a great club outing to Gubu Dam over the long weekend. Good catches were recorded although most were last November stocking which are now in the 400 to 500g range and well conditioned which is good growth for this water.

Although Port Elizabeth’s main storage dams are very low all our local dams where we fish are about 90% full and these include Sand River, Bulk and Churchill. Unfortunately, we have not been able to get yearling trout for Sand River Dam so most of the fish coming out are bass.

The Van Stadens Dam is looking good after being dredged out and we still plan to stock it with browns sourced from the Western Cape. Sadly, the browns which were being reared for us at the Ventnor hatchery died.

Our local club, the Eastern Province Freshwater Fishing Conservancy, now has a website which you can visit at

Some of the forthcoming club outings are:

14 July : Sandriver Dam.

9-11 Aug: Thrift

19-20 October: Baviaanskloof.
