John Hunter of the Village Angler reports that after a wet late October with quite cold days a week ago it has been hot and dry now for the most part. Dam levels are still good and cool nights have kept the water temperature reasonable. Most of the fishing has been on sinking and intermediate lines but he has found favour with buzzer/dry fly combinations with his floating line, including the clothes line method.
However, many anglers tend to use larger flies such as red-eye damsel, black wooly buggers and Mrs Simpson.
TFFC’s waters at Middelpunt have been regularly stocked in the last 2 months and most of the dams were weeded using a cable. For more information go to www.tffc.co.za
The Dullstroom Bonanza finished last Sunday with 92 competitors participating. With R200 000 worth of prizes on offer it was as usual a success with all profits going to local charity.
There is also the popular Elandskloof Trout Festival to look forward to on 21 October. To book contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Water levels are satisfactory and catches are reasonable but another black bass competition is being planned to thin out this species in the dams. At the moment the club is looking for a new chairman.
For more information phone Sarie at 079 6080734 or Bok at 082 2557290.
Although the river picked up after the last rains it has dropped back again and stocking has there been postponed until really good rains fall. Big Skye has good fishing available especially for kids and beginners in their Horseshoe Dam. Phone Andrew at 013-7642682.
