    Hey man
    I had the privelage of fishing Lakenvlei for about 45 minutes before sunrise this winter on a business stay over. Its an awesome venue! The trout dams are fed from kms of wetland so the water is in great condition as are the fish id imagine.

    So from my 45minutes on the water (at the first dam) this is what i know. DONT GO OUT BEFORE SUNRISE in winter! its a joke how cold it was. I literally broke the ice. I jumped on one of thier boats and fished right aong the reeds at the dam wall in the first dam. I caught 2 stokies on a walkers killer trailing a dragon fly nymph. They both faught well above thier weight.

    I ve been told that you ll often catch big trout there - especially in the botton trout dam. There were a family of otters where i launched which provided some entertainment and distraction from the rediculous tempreture.

    Get onto a boat or kick boat and I dont think you ll have a problem with the trout. Floating line may be handy as alot of the top dam looked quite weedy and shallow.

    Thats my 2 cents - but i really havent been there long enough to give solid advice.

    good luck
