Flyfishing report: Trout - Port Elizabeth

We have had plenty of rain along the coastal belt but very little inland to fill the large dams which supply our city with water. At least this means the dams our club fishes locally are brim full. After dropping substantially, a couple of months ago Bulk River is full again as is upper Van Stadens and Sand River. Although upper Van Stadens is covered in water lilies it fishable from the wall or from a float tube and a member caught the first brown of reasonable size from the last stocking. Bulk River is or other trout dam while Sand River is bass only.

The club will hold its AGM at the German Club on 18 August. We also had a club outing to Thrift over this last long weekend. Unfortunately, the fishing was hampered by foul weather and poor clarity of the water.
