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 past week delivered some excellent fishing. Big Carp up to 8 Kg Barbell 16 Kg and Muddies close to 4 Kg were caught by bank anglers. The weather was fine although we experienced fairly high temperatures. The river flow is around the 30 Cubic meter per second making it ideal for our fly-fishing patrons. Visibility is very good and our fly-fishing patrons enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

Green Rock worm with an Orange Bead Head, PTN Hotspot, Lime Green Caddis again with a Bead Head, Paul Slammer and GRH Ear Flies, were the most popular. Two patrons caught nineteen Small Mouth Yellows ranging from 2 to 4,5 Kg in one day using the abovementioned flies. Other fly-fishing patrons enjoyed mixed bags of Carp, Muddies and Yellows in their days fishing using, besides the abovementioned flies, flies of their choice. The point is that the fish were really feeding well and went for that which was presented.
