Lower Vaal

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.

Riet River

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.

Orange River

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.
