Trout are extremely weather sensitive fish & a sudden change in temperature or weather will put them off the bite, it may take a 3 - 4 days of consistent weather for them to start biting again.
We promote as natural an environment as possible and do not pellet feed our fish.
September is our favourite time of year for Fly Fishing.
Though conditions are good in winter this is also the trout's spawning season making fishing challenging.
The drought has had an impact on the fishing and water conditions in the Dullstroom area.
NOTE: Stocked waters do not guarantee that you will catch a fish; Nature
has the final say on fishing conditions.
ONLY FLY FISHING is permitted.
Fishing Conditions Record
August 2019 -
Over 50 kg of Rainbow Trout stocked.
The Bass are spawning, making for easy Bass Fishing.
Seasonal dams are low and haven't been stocked, please reference the recommended fishing map
Waters are stocked, bass are biting, trout are also biting but are tougher to catch. Water levels in dams are low and warm due to late rainfall and high temps.
Waters are stocked but trout seem to be off the bite due to the heat and the on and off rain. Bass are biting beautifully and give a fantastic fight. Some HUGE Tilapia / Breem have been caught at the upper / seasonal dams near Fish Eagle cottage.
We stocked 3 of our weirs with Rainbow Trout on 21 July 2020!
An additional 70kg of trout stocked! We now offer 6 stocked fishing waters and are hoping for good rain this summer so that we can stock our other dams.
