All our dams are full except Churchill which is down to 32%. Plenty of bass are being caught in Sand River Dam which has not been restocked with trout for several years due to the unavailability of yearlings. As you know stocking fingerlings in a bass dam merely fattens up the bass. The boat that we use for Bulk River Dam has still to be repaired, but I think I will take my kickboat up there as we restocked it with rainbows 2 years ago and in the last year stocked again with both rainbow and brown fingerlings. We are a bit concerned about upper Van Stadens where nothing had been caught for some time, but a good rainbow was taken there last weekend which gives us some hope now that the water has cooled down.
