Sundays river

I have not heard of any good catches being made in the river for the last couple of weeks.

Swartkops river

As per my previous report some decent garrick have been caught in the river in the beginning of May. I managed to catch the nice sized garrick pictured below, but unfortunately, I caught the fish on a lure and not a fly. I was hoping to catch a decent size garrick on fly but it was not meant to be. Good catches of grunter are still being made on lure and bait.

A couple of small skipjack have also been caught in the river.

Gamtoos river

A couple of kob and small garrick have been caught in the last month.

Unfortunately, the fishing has slowed down in the last month.

Krom river

I have not heard of any good catches being made in the river for the last couple of weeks.
