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

The River Flow is at 29 Cubic Meter per second and water visibility very clear. Nice sunny Weather this past weekend with no rain. Fly Fisherman had a wonderful time with not one but all of them catching Fish. One of our Patrons stop at Reception before leaving saying to us that he never caught so many Fish in one day.

Again this week Yellows from different sizes were caught on Copper John, Paul Slayer Caddis and Hot Spot Flies. Bank Anglers caught some nice Muddies and Yellows on Normal bread with Vanilla essence. One of the Patrons used Flying Ants for Yellows and had good response with Yellows and the odd Barbel.
