Far from the maddening crowd, just 45 minutes from Johannesburg, set on the banks of the Vaal River below the Barrage, lies the tranquil abode of Yellow Fish Paradise.

The 750 meters of river frontage provides both fast and slow runs flowing into large rocky pools with ideal eddies for holding both large and small mouth yellow fish, amongst other species common to the Vaal River system.

Yellow Fish Paradise is now not only a popular fishing venue. Patrons are now also enjoying the five self catering rondawels with its "on the river bank lapa" as a popular party venue for After-wedding parties, bachelor and birthday celebrations. The fact that a "all in stock" shop and well stocked liquor store exists on the premises with realistic prices adds to the convenience.


As the question of water flow in the Vaal below the Barrage (Lochvaal) is always of concern to our patrons, I have taken the trouble of providing three contacts for information concerning the river flow:

a) On the internet- BARRAGE DAILY FLOW RATE

b) Mr. Karel Kleinhans at 016 987-2044

c) The general Water Board number of Barrage is 016 987-2010

Weekly Report

It seems as though spawning is coming to an end and fishing is becoming quite active again. One of our guests who stayed with us for the past week had an absolute ball with the Carps and Muddies. Although the Carps he caught were not very big (on average 3-5Kg) he caught quite a few fish for the week on sweet flavored baits (Banana-x, caramel, and also duiwelsdrek flavors). Earthworms also seem to be favorites amongst the Carp, the odd Yellows and the Muddies.

Fly fishermen had quite a bit of activity on cadis and nymphs especially light colored flies imitating the different insect larvae hatching in the water at the moment.
