Lower Vaal
Very discoloured at present.

Riet River.

Had a good flow and clarity when I visited last Monday with the water temperature up to 20°C although this the cold weather must have brought this temperature down now. Caught plenty of yellows.

Lower Orange.

Gariep Dam is overflowing and the Orange river below is in flood. The Van der Kloof Dam has risen from 56% to 76% and has been discoloured by the inflow of the Orange floodwaters. The Orange below the VDK is therefore also dirty at least down to Hopetown although I believe it clears somewhat lower down.
