Hey all,

So I'm thinking of going fishing on Thursday and Friday but I don't know where would be good. I have a splash bass and I live in Lenasia. I don't want to travel too far but I also want to stay at a place that's safe as I might be going alone. I was thinking of the Vaal but I didn't get a single fish at the Vaal last summer. Any ideas? I appreciate your assistance.

FBM make it worth your while and come and fish at Albert Falls, safe camping or chalets. :blue-cool:

I would try Bronkhorstspruit, the vaal river is very tricky river to fish and with all the pollution and Jet-skis no thanks. I have been there once or twice when the fishing has been on and caught some nice fish. On the other hand i have been there and fished for two days and caught nothing.

For you, the easiest (and closest) would be Boskop. Go in the nature reserve entrance and find a place to launch (drive in about 2km odd from the gate and look for launching area's close to the big blue gum tree (its the only one for miles around). Camping is allowed and is relatively inexpensive (probably R50 a night). There are toilets, but no shower facilities.

So I really want a chalet, I really don't like camping.

Then there is 3 options for you if you would like a chalet and not camping:

1: Heia Safari - google them for contact details. They are in Muldersdrift. Tough dam to fish, but they are there if you know where to look (its bursting with carp, so the bank angelrs take over a bit...). Dam is small-ish, but the structure will keep you busy all day long. Trolling motors only.

2: Harties - Eagles Landing (the old Oberon)- google again - Harties is good fishing, especially in eagles landing's bay and the piers on peaconwood

3: Potch Dam - google as usual. Also pretty good fishing, but majority are small sizes. Dam is small though, so you'll go round a few times in the day. I've heard there are smallies in Potch dam, but never caught any there myself.

I've fished them all with varying success, so pm me if you want details on each dam.

Hope this helps
