Orange River

The Vanderkloof Dam and the river below the dam are still too muddy for largemouth fishing. The discolouration might have been caused by a big release from the Gariep Dam which is upstream.

Riet River.

Low and very clear so a careful approach is required but some good largies have been taken. The water temperature has risen to about 14°C which is still too cool for good smallmouth fishing.

Lower Vaal

I crossed the river at Warrenton and it looked an unhealthy greenish colour which is not encouraging.


The Vanderkloof Dam at the wall – note the discoloured water.
