Fishing on the KZN South Coast is currently at an all time low which is fairly normal for this time of year and very little being caught. Fly anglers have hardly bothered to tackle up, as even the rock and surf chaps are not catching very much. Occasional reports of undersized shad are received, but even the illegal road-side sellers of shad, north of Hibberdene, have not been seen for a while.  

A recent trip to the Kokstad area, by members of South Coast Fly Anglers, produced some very nice trout. These fish, while not being trophy-size, were in excellent condition and were extremely strong for their size.

The Umzimkulu River is still running a little dirty and no definite dates have been set for a scalie trip in the near future.
