Eastern Free State

It has been very cold in this part of the world with few people fishing eith the Klen Caledon, the Ash river or the farm dams. The good autumn rains have resulted in a good flow in the Klein Caledon so there should be good breeding in this stream this winter. All the trout dams are full with the exception of the Townlands Dam at Clarens which the municipality have not refilled after almost emptying it so the trout which were stocked in late 2017 might not have survived.

Lesotho report from Keith at Tourette

The camp closed for fishing on May 1 but some good sport was had for both rainbows and yellows in the estuary of the Bokong where it flows into the Katse Dam. The last few months of the season saw all the rivers flowing well following the good late season rains. There has been fairly good snowfalls so far this winter so when the camp reopens in November it is hoped that the river will be in good condition.
