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.
With the water temperature rising, the Yellows are starting to become active. Some nice Yellows were caught on almost any type of Nymph fly over the weekend. The fly fisherman had a ball. One of our patrons even caught a 6Kg Carp on fly. The bank anglers also enjoyed their fair share of fishing. They used particle ground feed which they mixed with hempseed oil and a protein mix. They caught mostly carps of average 5-6Kg's
With the weather warming up, why not bring the kids out to the river for some clean air and enjoyment.
