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

Monthly Report

The night temperatures are slowly improving and fish activity should improve during August. One of our regular patron caught 2Kg Smal mouth Yellow at the beginning of the Month, just show us Fish do need to eat even in winter time. Some flyfishermen have also started braving the cold waters and have also been lucky in landing the odd Carp or so. Just one Month left before the new Fishing season so lets gear up and get ready.

This past weekend we had our annual visit from a group of young friends who have made it a tradition to visit Yellowfishparadise the last weekend of July. This group of friends have been honoring us with their patronage for 16 years. Yellowfishparadise offers our patrons the opportunity to join us for some fun with family and good friends.

Then a sad subject, we know that the Vaal River has been in the news lately about the sewage in the river. Up to now, there was one day that there was a bit of foam on the water, since then, the water has been clear with no signs of sewage at the moment.
