I think most people have heard about the flooding in the East London area and the result is that all our local estuaries are a chocolate colour and completely unfishable. There have also been reports of bait anglers catching carp where we normally fish for saltwater species. The good news is that the rivers have been well flushed out, especially the Nahoon which had become badly polluted with extensive hyacinth aquatic weed in the upper reaches. Provided there is no further heavy rain it will take about 3 weeks before the estuaries become fishable again.
