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 Flow rate is normal at 15 Cubic meter per second and water temperature measured at 17 Degrees Celsius. Fishing is still very good for this time of the year with temperatures still high during night time. We got reports back from Fly fishermen that allot of sibblings are being seen, this is good news for our Eco system in the Vaal.

As we reported that fishing is at a High for this time of the year and Fly fishermen caught some nice fish last weekend. Mayflies, Shrimps, Black Fury and Hotspots are some of the flies that are effective.

Our Bank anglers caught some Nice Carps and Muddies very active. The Big Carps will go to the deep pools and hopefully that 15 Kg will be caught this Winter. Brown bread with honey and Pink Floaties were effective last weekend.

Please use our SEND PHOTO page to send us those big Fishes caught.
