Flyfishing report: Yellowfish - Lower Vaal & Orange

As you are aware the rivers have been unfishable for some time now. There is an improvement in the Orange as the release from Gariep and Vanderkloof is back to normal but the clarity down to Hopetown is still poor. The lower Vaal is still running strongly and is discoloured as a large amount of water is coming from Bloemhof Dam. It probably needs another month at least before the rivers are fishable and hopefully we will enjoy some largemouth yellowfish catches.
