Mike Pitt, UHTFC secretary reports that he was out on the Umzimkulu a couple of weeks ago and caught several fish up 48cm in the deeper pools but very few people have been fishing the river since September 1. In fact he was shocked to see how low it was a day or so ago and this will be discussed at the committee meeting next week and they may well close it until the first substantial rains  get the flow going again.

Because of the risk of Covid-19 to dairy farms only 8 of the 16 club-managed dams are open. These have been fishing quite well with the warmer weather with the largest taken in the last month at 9lb 4oz and 8 and a 7 pounder coming out as well.
