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.
May & September are our favourite times 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.
