Brondwyn Douglas, the new secretary to the Cape Piscatorial Society has advised members that the waters which were closed due the Covid 19 lockdown have been opened again. See below:
RIVER AND LAKENVLEI BOOKINGS OPEN
Bookings will only be taken during office hours: Monday to Friday 9am-3pm.
In addition, Brondwyn advises that as expected all the rivers are low and water temperatures tend to be high in the lower reaches. Water temperatures will also be high at Lakenvlei Dam. Fishing picks up again towards the end of April if winter rains arrive in time. All the streams close on May 31 until September 1.
Despite difficult conditions there has been some fishing taking place, especially in the Elandspad as cabin fever tends to encourage anglers to escape from restricted environments.
