Thread: Ithumela Fishing

  1. Default Ithumela Fishing

    Hey guys......

    I was wondering whether anyone knows this venue at all? Could you maybe share some insight/tips for fishing there?

    Dankie!

    Tip #1 : Leave your flies and invest in some earthworms with a float.

    Tip #2 : Go fish somewhere else.

    Friends of mine fished there quite often a few months back.If memory serves me correct I think it's on the Roodplaat dam road or somewhere there. Bass,Trout and Yellows available from what I understood.

    Also some river fishing in crystal clear waters I hear. They advertise in TCFF!

    Ah no! Seriously?!
    Well, can you suggest another venue close to Pretoria that's in the same price range that offers C&R?

    Well correction ... the river section is the same colour as the sludge near Harties dam wall, incidentally ... the river is also not FLY fishable, if you're a Papgooier or an Art Lure/Bass chucker you mightcatch something, still highly debateable.

    Way way way way way way way way way way way way way way (did I say way?) too overcrowded and because they allow any kind of angling you're going to be very fustrated, I also took a beginner out there to try and catch her first fish ... was a total waste of time.

    Better option is to hit one of the venues out towards Dullstroom/Belfast for the day, more of a drive but at least you will get some fish and be able to enjoy it somewhat.

    Nope not from what I heard, they spooked every Yellow in sight because of the good viz.Whether it's fishable or not I don't know,never been there before.Just giving feedback from a flower ff.

    Another rumour...Roodeplaat and Harties is clean,my mates went to Roodeplaat to fish for some cats on the weekend.
