    Phone the owners as they are knowledgeable anglers. I have not been back since the drought took hold but there is always the dam to fish.

    Fishing has been tough with the stream being almost completely dry for a period of time. We've had good rains over the past few weeks, and the Willow/Vlooikraal is flowing well again. Fishing will be tough, but the fish populations have picked up again since Sept last year. We've had a few spawns, so you will find fish I'm sure! Don't discount Burnbrae just below - there are good holding pools which would have held water (and fish) over the driest of times.
