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.

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

Winter Months are very quit at our resort therefore I took this opportunity to quote some of the Big Carp fishermen's findings:
Fish do not feed in winter
This is not true. In fact, many of the superbly conditioned fish caught that we see in magazines and TV shows, were caught in winter or just at the onset of spring. Fish DO feed in Winter, but they are less active because of the lower water temperature, and as such feed LESS than in higher water temperature regimes.
Lower water temperature affects smaller fish more than big fish so the chances are that you will catch LESS fish in winter, but they may be BIGGER. The fish move around less, so the chances of the fish finding the bait in the water is smaller than in warmer conditions.
Factors that may influence fishing in winter:
It is common knowledge that a sudden cold spell will severely limit the prospects of being successful. The fish become lethargic and most species will stop feeding for a while.
It is not yet known why a drop in barometric pressure causes fish to stop feeding. It is thought that the lower pressure on the water decreases the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water,thus, causing the fish to be more lethargic.
The Reports will only be done once a month until 1 September 2018. Please check out our Facebook page for more updates.
