The Mid Vaal maintained its unfishable status for our beloved yellows throughout the month of May, as high flow rates continued to taunt us. The Vaal Dam and the Barrage have finally started to throttle their outflows, and as we enter into the chilly winter weeks ahead, we can only hope that water clarity will keep improving. It’s now the season for fishing from inflatables, and anglers can look forward to targeting those deep dwelling, Largies. 


The mid-Vaal at normal flow.
