Mike Pitt, UHTFC secretary reports that the area has had 70 – 80 ml of very welcome rain in the last few days and the Umzimkulu is in heavy spate, suitable for canoeists but not for fishing. It will take a few days for the water to drop and clear providing there is no more heavy rain. The rain is also very welcome as the heat wave of the last couple of weeks resulted in water temperatures becoming very high in the dams and up to 20° to 21°C as far down as 3 metres. The rain and the cooler weather will go a long way in rectifying this.

Although some of the club managed dams on dairy farms were closed because of Covid 19 all dams are now open
