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

It was a lovely weekend. The weather was fine and although fairly hot quite bearable. The bank anglers caught well. Carp of up to 10.8 Kg and many varying from 2 Kg to 7 Kg were caught. Barbell were not so many and those caught ranging up to 7 Kg. Muddies were very active. Medium sizes were caught.

Fly fishermen also had a very successful weekend. Lots of Small Mouth Yellows ranging from 1,5 Kg to 4,5 Kg were caught. It is encouraging to see so many Small, Small Mouth Yellows. It is an indication that breeding last season, was fairly successful. Bank anglers again caught well on brown bread dough and mealie of even a floaty on the bottom hook.
