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

Fly Fishing Clinic

Weekly Report

Winter is on us, water temperature is 14 Degrees Celsius and fishing is strarting to slow down. However the past weekend some of our Patrons did catch nice fish, one of our regular Fly-Fisherman caught up to Ten Yellows size ranging from 1,5 Kg to 3 Kg. Dark Olive Green Caddis, Lilac Flashback May fly like flies and Dark Green with Orange bead head Copper John flies are still effective. Bank Anglers caught some Nice Carps and Barbell were also still active in water.

Our leader and Father Bill had a Stroke last week and is still in ICU. We all are praying for his Recovery and Hope he will be back soon at Yellow Fish Paradise.

Because of the Winter our Reports will only be done on a Monthly Basis, but please visit our Face Book Page for Regular updates.
