Northern KZN/SE Mpumalanga:

According to Horst both the Phongola and Asegaai are fishing very well and last weekend they had good catches of both small and largescale yellows including some big ones plus a nice chiselmouth. He has not fished the Pivane recently but reckons that should also be producing well. River flows generally have been good.

Tugela system.

Carl Freese of Tugela Fishing Company (083 2260810) who guides mainly in the upper Tugela area reports that the Tugela below Spioenkop Dam is milky but certainly fishable. The upper streams in the area are low and crystal clear and will be good for sight fishing.l

The middle Bushmans below the dam and the Mooi at Weenen are both producing yellows mainly on small nymphs in the deeper runs even though the water is still quite cold. Towards the end of the month and into Sept when there are better hatches dries will come into their own.

Southern KZN:

Karl Adensgaard (082 4558818) is not available at the moment but Jan Korrubel reports that yellows are being taken in the mid reaches of the Umkomaas which is flowing well
