Right now there is no prospect of fly fishing until the wind drops and for those fishing the sea the waves are enormous so the ski boats will not go out for some time. The local lagoons, Bot River and Hermanus, have been very quiet recently and there has been no news from De Mond. Further afield at Breede River and Duivenhoks there were modest catches of mainly kob and grunter but this last cold front has brought some good rain to those catchments and the cold water which will enter these two estuaries will put the fish down for 2 – 4 weeks.
Here at Hermanus we have had about 60ml over the weekend and there is more to come on Saturday. On the other hand we will need much, much more to fill the local estuaries after a very dry summer and autumn.
