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

What a weekend !!! Rain fell during the nights but cloudy to warm weather during the daytime produced an excellent weekend. The fish were very active. Bank anglers had a "Ball".One angler landed some 26 fish mostly Carp ranging from 2,5 kilogram to 8 kilogram. White dough floaties caramel mealies and tiger nuts worked well. Another new one was a mixture of a small amount of sardines or pilchards into the brown and white bread dough. Big Barbell also made a show. Fly fishermen did very well. The same range of green flies, PTN hotspot and Purple flashback Zak as mentioned the past two weeks, again worked. The odd Yellow was also taken on a red and yellow bloodworm.
