Sept 1 saw the Western Cape streams flowing strongly. According to CPS secretary Louis de Jager tickets were only taken out for the Smalblaar and Elandspad. A couple of fish were taken on the Smalblaar, but the anglers tackling the Elandspad blanked as they were fishing with dries in very heavy water.
For the coming weekend tickets have been taken for the Holsloot and Witte also, but as rain is still falling in Cape Town flyfishers may be confronted with heavy water again. All this of course is very good news for Cape Town and the Western Cape after a fairly dry August.
The CPS’s main stillwater fishery, Lakenvlei at Ceres, remains open during winter and has fished reasonably well and should continue to produce until the early summer weather sets in. About a week ago the CPS stocked the dam with 1300 rainbows of 500g weight. The reason for stocking larger fish was to avoid predation by bass which are also in the dam
