    Default Dead yellows in Vaal

    Hey guy's.

    Just heard on the OFM lunch news that some dead yellows were found in the Vaal, they did not specify were or why.

    It must be substancial numbers to make the news.

    Could some one give more info..

    Needed to test my new stick and just could not wait to throw a line.
    Once the algae is gone the fishing should pick up.

    The pollution seems to come from the Small Riet which flows into the Vaal below the barrage.From what my sources say it is sewage so the guys fishing near the barrage this weekend must be very carefull as the extent of the contamination is unknown.Please post if you guys see anything or hear anything out of the ordinary.
