The bass fishing outing to Settlers Dam at Grahamstown on the weekend of 23 – 24 December was enjoyed by all but the dam itself is very low. Strangely enough some trout were caught at Sand River Dam near PE which by this time in summer is usually too warm for productive fishing and one tends to catch only bass. The dam was stocked with yearling trout a couple of 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.
Bulk River Dam is far too low for fishing as PE has been drawing water from it whereas the pipe from Sand River is broken so the dam has remained quite full.
