The Free State province is not well endowed with bass fishing spots but we are constantly looking so keep watching this space. The Vaal Dam is located mainly within the Free State although it borders on Gauteng as well as Mpumalanga and the North West so it has been included here. Not a well known bass fishing lake, but it is huge, the 3rd largest lake in South Africa, the Vaal has come to the attention of bass anglers recently.
Other Bass waters in the province are the large and ultra clear Sterkfontein and Saulspoort Dam, near the town of Bethlehem which is as small as the Vaal is large. All though have one thing in common, they offer decent fishing for largemouth bass.
