Mike Pitt, UHTFC secretary reports that it has rained, but not sufficiently to guarantee a good steady flow in the Umzimkulu or to fill the dams properly. Actually, there has not been much fishing done as most of the visitors have departed, river flow is erratic and sometimes discoloured if thunderstorm downpours hit the catchment. Due to the hot weather there has been high usage of water from the irrigation dams so the club is left with only 5 dams open to fishing as the rest have been closed due to low water levels.
