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 INFORMATION
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
Fly Fishing Clinic
We are Fortunate to have a Fly Fishing Coach, Jeff Comins that are available on Request at Yellow Fish Paradise.
Jeff can be Contacted on 071 482 8694 for Fly Fishing dates or a Clinic Course.
A few nice Carps were caught this weekend on Banana flavored floaties and dough. However it seems as though the carps have started going into early spawn. Yellows, although not very big, are also very active on fly. Our fly fishermen have had quite a bit of success on light coloured nymphs (Mayflies becoming active, hence the light coloured nymphs are working well). Muddies are rather quiet. Barbel are very active on just about any kind of fishing.
With the weather warming up, why not bring the kids out to the river for some clean air and enjoyment.
