Friends who went to the Windsorton section of the river last weekend were disappointed to find it very discoloured and not fit for fly fishing. This is a pity as in August it was very clear.
The lower Riet is normally very clear at this time of year, but it is still dirty, possibly because of a strong inflow from the Modder River which joins it a fair distance upstream.
Same problem with the Orange below Vanderkloof Dam near Hopetown as the photo below shows.
No doubt it is much clearer well downstream in the Richtersveld area.
