Thread: Bushman's Kloof Fishing

    Default Bushman's Kloof Fishing

    My wife and I spent 2 nights at Bushman’s Kloof earlier this week. The Boontjies and Biedouw Rivers run through the property and they have built a dam on the Boontjies that has a good number of Clanwilliam Yellowfish and Sawfin. I got many Sawfin, a new one for me, and a 40cm Clanwilliam Yellowfish. What a great place, very expensive but they have occasional specials that make a trip more affordable.
    The Biedouw River and the Boontjies can be fished but requires far more effort and due to time restraints I did not try. I did see massive fish in a plunge pool below a waterfall on the Boontjies.

    A couple of years back, I hosted Kathryn Maroun from What a catch at the Bushman's Kloof Lodge.

    Got a couple of lovely fish.
    Nothing to big, but I spotted a HUGE monster. In the dam, just cruising, What a sight it was.

    Best place for photos is www.bushmanskloof.co.za. It really is a great place, the dam acts as a feeder so there are good numbers of Yellowfish and Sawfin in the streams and rivers in the area. Spotted some big fish in the Boontjies river in a pool below a waterfall.
