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:

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.
What a Great fishing weekend we experienced this past Easter weekend. Bank anglers had a fun weekend catching from Muddies to Yellows. One of our younger fisherman caught a 16 Kg Barbel and some nice sized Carps. The old time favourite Sweet Dow and Floaties did the job this weekend. Winter is clearly setting in as bigger fish are feeding at the surface and water temperature is dropping, making the bigger Carps an easier catch. Young and old enjoyed the fishing and even braved the colder weather in the evenings.
There are still rondawels and chalets available for the coming weekend as well as next weekend (long weekend). Come and enjoy the last few warm days before winter chills set in. Contact Maadje on 0823916784 for bookings.
