The Sand River dam, one of our local dams, is already too warm for good trout fishing and most of the fish coming out now are bass. We were planning to collect our brown trout fingerlings this week which have been grown out at Ventnor hatchery plus some rainbows for stocking in Bulk River Dam and Van Stadens Dam, the latter having been dredged out recently. This stocking has been delayed until December owing to the slow growth of the browns.
We had our Baviaanskloof outing on 23-25 October for smallmouth bass fishing in the Kougha, but we caught were few bass as barbel (sawtooth catfish) appear to have taken over the river. We had to cancel our club outing to Thrift Dam because of bad weather and this trip will take place on 23 – 25 November.
The FOSAF Eastern Cape Region AGM was held last weekend at Gubu Dam. WE had good attendance but for some reason the fishing was very slow.
