Northern KZN/SE Mpumalanga: Unlike the scaly rivers further south the smallscale and largescale yellowfishing in the Phongola and Assegai comes into its own in late autumn/winter. Although flows are quite good at the moment the levels could drop quickly if there is no further rain.
Southern KZN: Karl Adensgaard reports that the Umkomaas was clearing nicely and then a storm at the headwaters turned the water murky again. With no further rain in the catchment it should be fine for fishing again within a week but with a strong flow. March/April are considered prime months.
