    Default Whats happening in Calitzdorp dam????

    Hi

    I am planing a trip to the Oudtshoorn Calitz dorp area, during the Oct holidays. I have read the threads on Calitzdorp dam but some suggested that the fishing wasnt good lately.

    Do any one have some recent info on the fishing.

    As far as I know Seam Mills and Mark Kriege fished a river near Calizdorp when they made their Yellowfish DVD, suggest you drop them a line as the river fishing looked very good.

    Have been wanting to ff this venue now for 2 years, dislocated my knee and since been on hold. Maybe the comming spring, looking for close camping on the dam itself.

    Will be great, let me know when. Been trying to get camping/accommadation for the venue. Little feedback from forumers here. Let me know what you come up with, either way.

    Hi Cave

    Fish eagle resort is on the banks of the dam. Spoke to the owner last night. No need to book they will have space available. The site do not have electricity but toilets ext with green grass ext to camp on. Cost is very reasonable at R60 per site and R 20 PP.

    You can camp right on the banks of the dam. At moment I'm fishing the rivers in the area, but will not be getting to the dam. Will let you know how the rivers are fishing, normally when the rivers are fishing good, the dam will also be good.

    You can also fish the Raubenheimer dam outside of Oudtshoorn for some monster bass - take your float tube.

    The rivers all around have good fishing if you know where to go, not worth the effort if you have limited time available. PM me if you want to try out one or two options, it is difficult fishing and the troot are few and far.
