Lower Vaal

The river came down in flood in early May, but it has now cleared nicely and is running at a level slightly higher than the normal winter level.

 Riet River

This river is low and clear with most of the fish in the deeper water. May and June are normally good months for targeting largemouths of which this river has a good population.

Orange River

The Orange below VDK dam is still a bit on the turbid side. Most of the yellows have moved to deeper water with largemouths being the preferred target at this time of year. However to reach the deeper water one should have a rubber duck or similar craft.
