    Perfect for Smallmouth Yellowfish in the Vaalriver & Orangeriver.

    No fishing again in the Vaal the whole week as Joburg had lots of rain.

    and going lower down? Potch area? Surely all the weirs between barrage and Schoemansdrif will block most of the strong flow? Looking to go to Schoemansdrif tomorrow maybe.

    Seasons compliments to all fellow fishermen...

    Does anyone know what the flow from Potch to Klerksdorp is doing?

    Secondly, can you recommend good spots for these kind of flows.
    I've read the Vermaasdrift is promising, is that still true and how do you access the river? I was there 2 months or so ago and the only way i could see was to jump...

    No ways you going to fish this weekend on fly, water still very high. Vermaasdrift you would have to park your car on the bridge and than walk down to get to the stream. Not safe to fish there at the moment, guy got robbed and hijacked a while back. I would rather fish Schoemansdrift bridge or go to Scandavia bridge resort, much safer. Fishing is not safe anymore like before, I always carry my handgun with me in or out of the water.

    Any idea what the viz is like on the Vaal, Parys area? Flow seems to be back to normal at around 29.
