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.

The 750 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.


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

c) The general Water Board number of Barrage is 016 987-2010

Fly Fishing Clinic

Monthly Report

Once again, our winter monthly report proves the reason why we do not report every week. As mentioned in my previous report, one would expect that the 20th of June is the swing around of our winter to spring and summer. However, the minus temperatures at night have persisted throughout July, leaving the river temperature around 11 Degree Centigrade.

The night temperatures are slowly improving and fish activity should improve during August. One of our regular patron caught 2Kg Smal mouth Yellow at the beginning of the Month, just show us Fish do need to eat even in winter time. Some nice Carps were caught during the last month by Bank Anglers ranging from 8Kg - 10 Kg. Some flyfishermen have also started braving the cold waters and have also been lucky in landing the odd Carp or so. Just one Month left before the new Fishing season so lets gear up and get ready.

Our Leader Bill is getting Stronger each day, we just want to thank every Patron for their support and Prayers.
