    Default Spotted Bass been spotted?

    Does anyone know of any venues in the Western Cape that have spotted bass (besides Wiesenhof) They fight like hell and are great to take on fly.

    You will find fair numbers of them in the Groot River along with loads of very good sized Smallmouths and Clanwilliam Yellows.

    99% sight fishing.

    Cheers

    Default Grrot River details

    Thanks MC,
    How accessible is the Groot? Any suggestions on where to fish it if travelling from Cape Town?
    thanks

    Travel from CT to Ceres and keep going right through Ceres on the same road that you come in on. After Ceres follow the road, which turns into a very good dirt road, for 140 kms. On the left hand side you will find a turn off marked Die Mond.

    Camping and very basic huts/chalets available.

    Lots of Bass though.

    Enjoy

    Hi Brin,

    As far as I know Mr. Mills has caught some in the Berg River. Call him at Flywaters 021 949 1119

    The Du Toits river at the top of Franshoek Pass used to have Spotted Bass in it when I was a youngster. I dont think it ever gets fished much and it is maybe worth a look at
