We've been having real winter conditions here in the Garden Route. Cold and windy days have kept fly fisherman at bay. Most Estuaries which are open to the sea have been icy cold and fish have not been active.
This time of the year perseverance will be the key to having any success.
Goukamma - Buffalo Bay
Small garrick been caught, the mouth is also still closed. Kob can be found if you search those deeper holes up river.
Fishing only allowed 6h00 to 18h00.
Not much happening in Knysna the last month. Water has been very cold. Upriver (Red bridge) a better chance of getting any fish as the water is a couple degrees warmer there. The kob are more active at night up river.
By boat, Grunter Alley, would be a good place to target Grunter.
Plettenberg Bay estuaries
A few Garrick and a grunter was caught. Although the fish are about they seem to have lock jaw.
