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

Weekly Report

It was a lovely sunny weekend at Yellowfishparadise. The bank-anglers as well as some fly-fishermen caught a lot of Muddies and rock Catfish even-though the river flow was a bit high. Worms as well as garlic and sweet baits were used with huge success. We even had a youngster catching his very first Muddy on fly - actually first fish ever on fly this weekend - it was just smiles from ear to ear. The river flow is expected to drop slightly by the weekend, making it easier to access the river for the fly fishermen.

Some good news is that the Yellows are done with spawning and are actively starting to take on fly, especially coppejohns, and bright caddises. We still have rondawels available for the following three weekends (3rd, 10th & 18th December) All Rondawels have been rigged out with new cutlery, crockery and linen.
