Far from the maddening crowd, just 45 minutes from Johannesburg, set on the banks of the Vaal River below the Barrage, lies
the tranquil abode of Yellow Fish Paradise.
meters of river frontage provides both fast and slow runs flowing into large
rocky pools with ideal eddies for holding both large and small mouth yellow fish, amongst other species common to the Vaal River system.
Yellow Fish Paradise is now not only a popular fishing venue. Patrons are now also enjoying the five self catering rondawels with its "on the river bank lapa" as a popular party venue for After-wedding parties, bachelor and birthday celebrations. The fact that a "all in stock" shop and well stocked liquor store exists on the premises with realistic prices adds to the convenience.
RIVER FLOW INFORMATION
As the question of water flow in the Vaal below the Barrage (Lochvaal) is always of concern to our patrons, I have taken the trouble of providing three contacts for information concerning the river flow:
a) On the internet- BARRAGE DAILY FLOW RATE
b) Mr. Karel Kleinhans at 016 987-2044
Fly Fishing Clinic
c) The general Water Board number of Barrage is 016 987-2010
We are Fortunate to have a Fly Fishing Coach, Jeff Comins that are available on Request at Yellow Fish Paradise.
Jeff can be Contacted on 071 482 8694 for Fly Fishing dates or a Clinic Course.
We have been experiencing lovely warm spring weather, but with spring, comes spawning season. Muddies are going into full spawn, carps starting to spawn, however not in full swing. The Yellows are not yet actively in spawn although the odd spawning activity has been spotted. But with that said, some of our patrons have had quite a bit of success.
Fly fishermen have had success on most light colored nymphs imitating natural insects in the water at the moment. Our bank anglers have caught quite well on earthworms and banana baits.
Our chalets and rondawels are fully booked for this weekend, but come out and set up camp, visit us for the day, but whatever you do, come and have some fun in the sun.
