There will be a club outing at Gubu Dam this weekend and then on 9 August club members go up to Thrift Dam to assist Martin Davies with the second ova harvesting from the fish in the dam. This is done mainly with fyke nets but also with rod and fly. The first harvesting was a week ago and apparently was very successful.

Upper van Stadens Dam outside PE has been dredged so it can now be stocked. This will be with 200 small brown trout fingerlings which will be allowed to grow out before rainbows are introduced. This dam is about 5 ha in size and will be a great addition to the trout waters in the PE area. At the same time as this stocking 400 brown fingerlings will be placed in Bulk River Dam which has refilled and now needs comprehensive re-stocking.
