SE Mpumalanga.

Horst reports that he is due to take his first batch of clients for 2022 in two weeks time. Currently the rivers are high and discoloured so they will head for the upper reaches of either the Phongola or Assegai where provided it does not rain heavily they should find the conditions acceptable.

Northern Natal.

Carl Freese of the Tugela Fishing company says that in the central Drakensberg the Tugela tributaries, are running strongly with plenty of KZN yellowfish and trout about with the latter tending to be in the higher reaches. Below the major dams the water is still a bit brown and needs to clear a bit. It also all bodes well for a great spring season when the water warms up again.

Southern Natal.

Karl Adensgaard (082 4558818) reports that the middle Umkomaas is very full for this time of year but clearing nicely and is certainly fishable.
