The rivers opened for fishing on September 1 and although they are extremely low with the Umzimkulu itself only a trickle. However, some good fish have been taken in the deeper pools. A 61 cm rainbow taken from the Polela probably originated from the irrigation dam which has been constructed lower down. The club is limiting the fishing on the rivers until the rains arrive as there are plenty of dams to choose from. In August 23 rods fished the dams and caught 43 trout, the largest being 54cm.

This Saturday the club together with Xplorer are hosting a flyfishing festival with the AGM to be held at the Underberg Country Club that evening.
