It is very dry in PE and the Bulk River Dam has dropped by 8 metres and all our trout are concentrated in a couple of pools. However, the low level means we can recover the boats that were sunk in the dam a few years ago.
Sand River Dam has maintained its level. A new member who went up immediately on joining caught 5 trout on his first outing and then blanked on the next two.
The club AGM will be held at the German Club, Port Elizabeth on the evening of August 17. We have some good prizes on offer including a kickboat, a V vice and a very nice rod from Xplorer.
Outings for the rest of the year.
11 – 13 August. Thrift Dam. Trout fishing, stay at the Thrift cottages.
22 - 25 September. Baviaanskloof Rooihoek campsite. 2 or 3 nights. Smallmouth Bass fishing.
28 October. Sand River dam day outing. Bass (and maybe Trout) fishing, bring and braai.
25 - 26 November. Settlers dam or Brakkeduine. Bass fishing and overnight camping.
