Wolf reports that anglers out fishing the dams are having to work hard for their fish and of course at this time of year the rivers are closed until September 1. The water temperature is at 10°C but after the cold front which should reach Underberg at the end of the week we may see temperatures rising.

In dams without a good inflow people have been targeting frustrated spawners or young fish which have not reached sexual maturity but otherwise one has had to persevere. Probably the best time is the afternoon when the water temperature reaches its peak.

Right now the days are fairly warm with cold nights. Most dams are full but very clear after the late rains and as we move into August and it warms up the results should be better.
