    Default Lake Cahora Bassa

    Howzit

    I do not know if anyone watched the Kynet show "Hier Gaan Ons Alweer" the other night? The chaps fished Cahora Bassa, they were m@ering the Tigers...trophy after trophy, biggest was almost 10Kg's

    After fishing the main lake, they went to an inelt stream/river, and boy of boy...they unfortunately did not fish fly tackle but every cast produced a fish, one fish even had a monster tiger chase it once hooked right in front of the okes feet...imagine present a nice flashy fly in that river...guarenteed SLAM and DUNK

    Where can a person get info on where to stay etc and who to contact for guided trips on Cahora, just like the Hier Gaan Ons alweers dudes did...?

    Default Cahora Bassa

    On the Kyknet website is info on all the places they've visited. The guide in Cahora is Emile Sada. He runs a houseboat opp. @ Cahora. You'll find his details on the website. I don't know if you've watched the whole series when they were @ Cahora? They did catch some tigers, in those inlet streams,on fly, not as big as the ones in the main lake but I won't mind hooking into the same size as they did!

    Cool

    I can organise trips to Ugezi Tiger Lodge – packages tailor-made according to group size. dirk@y-knot.co.za packages include flights and accomodation.

    Hi Guys,

    I am resurrecting this thread again since I could not find any other info on the site.

    I will be visiting Mosambique close to the Cahorra Bassa Dam end of this month for business, seems like there is some very good tigerfishing to be had there!

    Has anyone stayed over at Ugezi Tiger Lodge? It looks very good and nice on the website, however one of my colleagues stayed there a while ago and he was not impressed! He said the beds were very small and uncomfortable and that the aircon was close to useless.. (This is in an area where the average day temp for this time of the year is about 40deg C, so yes it is necessary!!!)

    Anybody who has some info on fishing on the dam please respond to this thread, I need to know where can I book a days fishing on a boat and what flies would work for tigers there.

    Thanx!

    Best Regards

    Jaco
