The streams are all closed until September 1, but the UHTFC manages some 15 dams in the Underberg area which are well stocked. Apparently, despite the windy conditions of the last few weeks there have been some good catches recorded. Trealeven 4, Roccos and Goxhill have all fished well. There is a Stillwater festival to be held from 20th to 22nd September with 20 teams of 2 at R1500 per angler. Sponsorship of the event is by Xplorer. More information about the festival and the club may be accessed at the club website at
