Phongola & Assegai
Horst reports that the rivers are flowing well and the fishing has been very good in both the Phongola and Assegai systems where winter is the prime time for fishing. Good news also is that he has only confiscated one net compared to the many he had to take out last year. It is also an important period for hunting and bird shooting which is taking up much of Horst’s time at the moment..

Tugela System.

Carl Freese of Tugela Fishing Company (083 2260810) who guides in the area reports that the Berg rivers are low for this time of year and there has been no fishing as most outdoors people are into hunting now. He expects the yellowfishing to start up again in August.

Southern KZN:

Karl Adensgaard (082 4558818) says that the although the Umkomaas River is flowing well for mid-winter and is very clear there has been virtually no fishing recently in his stretch of river.
