AMATOLA FLY FISHING CLUB  (Stutterheim & Kingwilliamstown).

Gubu  & Maden dams.

Both of these dams are full but water temperatures are too high for productive fishing  in these low altitude stillwaters although in Gubu which is a deep and large water you will catch trout with a fast sinking line and fished on the thermocline.

These dams are well stocked as a result of a very comprehensive stocking policy over the last 4 years, and the talking point at the moment is the good growth rate of the browns which were put into Gubu last year.

For Gubu contact Edward Truter at or 078 1141669 or alternatively Ryan Smith at 078 0199967. For Maden Dam it is Dean Stoltz of Target Line at 043 7265133 or go to the website at


Most of the visitors to this picturesque venue are hikers but there is some interesting trout fishing as well. The Cata River contains wild browns, small in the forested upper reaches but larger in the bottom section. The nearby Mnyameni Dam contains plenty of pan sized wild rainbows so light tackle is required for angling. For more go to
