Club members of our local club, the Eastern Cape Freshwater Fish Conservancy, have taken a number of bass from Sand River Dam and we believe there are very few trout left in this water as it has not been restocked for 2 years. Because of predation by bass this dam will only be stocked with trout again when yearlings become available once more.
However, rainbow fingerlings were stocked in Bulk River Dam and Van Stadens River Dam in December last year which has now been dredged and is suitable for fishing again. It will probably be another year when these trout reach a reasonable size. All the dams are now full after recent rain.
