    I would suggest you fish the section below the dam wall, in the river.
    Look for the rapids, with the normal weighted nymphs.
    Seeing that you are new, have some split shot with you, to make sure you get down. to the bottom of the river bed.
    Not sure what the flows will be when you are there, be careful if it is high.
    You can check the Richtersveld threads etc, basically the same type of flies.
    You might want to try some dry and dropper setups as well, in the slowflowing areas.
    Watch for the hour round sunrise and the half hour before sunset for good dry fly action.
