Wolf reports that the rivers are looking exceptional for this time of year. Not surprising as he recorded 71,5 ml of rain in August followed by 25ml in early September. So, if you have some spare time head for Underberg. Water temperature in the dams is about 15°C which is ideal and one is starting to see good hatches. Alan Payne at the club says there have been good catches at some of their dams with rainbows up to 63cm coming out.
