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.
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.
RIVER FLOW INFORMATIONAs 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 RATEb) Mr. Karel Kleinhans at 016 987-2044
c) The general Water Board number of Barrage is 016 987-2010

Water Temperatures are rising with activity of fish all over the river. Our river Banks are clean with no dying fish, fortunately the healing process of the Vaal river will take time and hopefully the spillages will stop.
Some of our regular Patrons caught some nice Carps last weekend. All the Vaal species are active in the river with the water temperatures rising. The visibility is not clear but for this time of the year it seems normal. Let's see what this Long weekend will provide us maybe that Monster Carp or Yellow.
We just want to Report our E.Coli count as seen on Image is at Low risk count, Test point 10.
