Orange

We were to fish the Vanderkloof Dam over the long weekend but due to an unexpected release from the Gariep Dam the level rose from 68% to 72 % and the visibility was reduced from an acceptable level to virtually nil so we had to cancel the trip. Apparently below the dam visibility dropped also but some good fishing had by some bait fishermen catching carp & yellows.

Riet River

The Riet is currently stable and the levels constant whilst the visibility is extremely clear.

Vaal River

The Vaal level is still as per normal with the visibility 400mm. Some concern is the growing quantity of hyacinth since the last flood earlier this year. It is hoped that the cold will kill the hyacinth.
