Fly fishing has improved recently with plenty of what we call ‘rats and mice’ which are mainly 3 spot pompano and threadfin which are good sport on light tackle. These are being caught on small shrimp and maxi dog breakfast patterns.  During the spring tides kingfish are being taken up at Vidal.

Regarding the lake itself plenty of water is pouring in from the Umfolozi diversion at the estuary end but it is bringing with it tons of sediment. Apparently once the mouth is open and the tidal flow is operating this according to the scientists will take the sediment out to sea but I rather doubt that this will be enough to remove all this silt.
