    Hello Guys

    Doing the drift at Elgro this Sunday for what ever wants to bite. Any news on the fishing or tips that might be handy ?

    Howzit Reveck.
    I suspect the flow will be very low on sun around the 12m3/s, which i find elgro to be a bit tougher with the very low flows, but that is just me. When you drifting down look for the rocky steep banks you will find plenty structure in the water in the area, especially the submerged ledges. Spend a bit of time in these spots. If you can find a bit of depth in and around even better. Don’t be scared to have a couple of casts in the middle of the river opposed to just concentrating on the banks. I would start off with a small dark msp pattern, but again that is just me. I understand the smallies have become rather spooky when feeding on the surface. So if you do find pods approach very slowly and quietly.

    Good luck and Enjoy man

    Reveck, with flows of below 20 tons, just pray that the wind is dead still.

    IF IT BLOWS PRAY IT'S DOWNSTREAM.

    If the wind is any way upstream you are in for more paddling than fishing.

    ELGRO is a long "drift".

    Good luck
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    Reveck, please let me know how it goes as we are going down for the weekend next weekend 29th - 1st and currently debating doing the 12 Kms Schoeman's to Elgro drift on Sat and down stream on Sunday or just the downstream on both days.
