Thread: Trout areas in South Africa

  1. #1

    Default Trout areas in South Africa

    I am interested in the areas in SA that contain trout streams. I am not interested in your personal secret stream, just the broad areas that contain trout. Ones I can think of off the top of my head:

    Western Cape
    Natal
    North Eastern Cape - Rhodes etc
    Eastern Cape - Outeniqua, Oudtshoorn
    Karoo - Somerset East
    Trout triangle - Dullstroom etc
    Limpopo - Haenertsburg
    Anything in the Northern Cape?

    There are no rivers in the Northern Cape to speak of (except the Orange), so unlikely to have much trout
