Although February is the least favourable month for trout fishing in the Western Cape the Smalblaar, Elandspad and Holsloot have all produced some fish this month, mainly in the early hours of the morning while the water is still cool. The Holsloot is often the more dependable as compensation water is released from the Stettynskloof Dam which helps to bring temperatures down. And as expected bass are coming out in the warmer conditions all of which must all be killed.
