Louis de Jager of the CPS reports that August has been quite dry and much more rain is needed to fill the main dams supplying Cape Town with water and keep the streams running well into summer. The river season opens on September 1 and during winter most of the trout fishing has been done at Lakenvlei in the Ceres valley. This is 62% full as quite a bit of water has been released for the next dam down. Catches are quite good, mainly rainbows and some browns from last year’s stocking. The only other stillwater open to the public is La Ferme at Franschoek as Eikendal at Somerset West closed down.
