Eastern Free State

There is little news from the trout front, but the exception is Craigrossie which is well stocked, but one must book accommodation to have access to the fishing. Most local fly fishers are preparing for the yellow fishing at Sterkfontein which will start in earnest once the water warms up.

Lesotho report from Keith at African Waters.

The good snow and early spring rains have been really welcome. We saw the first small run of yellows into camp water in mid September,but wait for the majority of the fish to move into the system later this spring (normally early Nov). Spring has sprung in Lesotho and the mountains are turning green. With the water table high, we are already seeing good seepage coming off the mountains, so this combined with predicted above average rains, and we are looking forward to a cracker river season coming up. We will be opening on 15 November and the new family cottage will be available on December 1.
