I have only been there once before.

Crystal clear water so fishing for bass is not that easy. I finally mange to get some bass using a jig fishing straight up and down aka drop-shot style directly next to the big grass patches some 30 m from the edges.

The place is known for its Yellows and strong (very strong) winds, be very careful. Here's some more reading:

Fly fishing for Yellows or even poppers

You don't want to get a day like this. The kite borders use this dam to break speed records.

Eish I heard of the Sterkies storms but did not think it would be this bad...

... makes some of our Western Cape storms at Theewaters and Brandvlei look like a walk in the park :blue-shock:

This is quite old but should help you to get started on this huge body of water.

I stayed a night @ Qwantani in July this year on a trip and the management of the resort told me they encourage no release of any bass caught in this pristine yellowfish water.......
Lovely dam though.

Definately a dam on my todo list and I would not mind getting a PB on a nice yellow either!

Hi Rowles

I spent a great part of my life on Sterkies!

Believe my the Yellow fishing is insane, leave your bass gear at home & catch some yellows!

Hi

When did you intend fishing there. Bassing is not very easy there. I could give you a few tips if it's not too late.
