Not surprisingly fly fishing in the streams is tailing off in this winter rainfall area. Levels are dropping and water temperatures are increasing and trout are seeking the deeper, cooler areas. However, the odd fish is still being taken and the situation is far better than a year ago except for the Witte, with better water flow and improved populations of trout which took a hammering in the drought of a year ago. Lakenvlei Dam is still 70% full but here also the fishing is coming to an end with the hotter weather.
