Sand River Dam, the only local dam now with trout is usually considered too warm for trout fishing at this time of year but there are bass to be caught in this water. Fortunately for anglers the water supply pipe is still damaged so the dam has remained full. Bulk River Dam which was nearly empty a few months ago is now two thirds full but re-stocking of this dam has been delayed.  Sand River was stocked with yearling trout a three months ago but there is concern about the availability of yearlings in future now that Martin Davies is no longer running the hatchery at Rhodes University.

The local club, the EP Freshwater Fish Conservancy will be holding its first meeting of the year next week when the outings for 2018 will be planned and these will include trips to Thrift and Sand River.
