    Default Hot Spots on the Klipriver

    Has anyone got a secret spot on the klipriver near meyerton, as I work in meyerton and would be nice to take a detour on the way home some/most afternoons.

    or is the Klip just too dirty?

    Mike, there are some nice rapids near the Country Club. I fished them about 2 years ago. All I caught was sacks, old shirts, shorts, dresses etc. etc. I have never in my life seen such polluted water
    An ariel pic showing the confluence of the Klip and Vaal proves this. Below the confluence the water is black, above it the normal Vaal Dam brown.
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    Guys,

    I own property which borders the Kliprivier in Meyerton. I have about 40metres of riffles and upstream from my place there is a huge slow pool.
    We regularly catch lovely yellows and muddies.

    Although the river is unfisheable at the moment, you guys can contact me and we can set something up.

    That is very kind of you Zambezi.

    I go past meyerton when working in Vdbijl, Vereeneging or Sasolburg for a week every now and then. Often wondered about that water?
    The best day to go fishing is any day that ends in a "y"

    Hi Guys

    Been a while... has anyone fished the Kliprivier recently? I went to the Country Club and the water looks pretty good, there was a lot of surface action and I saw a couple of monster barbel.

    The water looked a bit dirty but there is no bad smell.
