Yellowfish Fishing in South Africa

There are two species of yellowfish in the sections of river we fish. Both are extremely hard fighting and take a variety of different presentations including the fly, trotted worm, prawn or crab as well as spinners and jigs. The many miles of water we fish contain some extremely large yellows the average fish being 3-5kg with some exceeding 10-15kg.

The South African record has just been broken less than 30km from our fishing areas on the same river and at almost 25kg (55lb). It is easy to see why they are so sought after. 

Outstanding natural beauty

The areas we have fishing rights to for both large and small moth yellow fish are something to behold. The views are absolutely breath taking and with vast numbers of yellows in the fast flowing waters, it is a fishing adventurers paradise. Acting very much like trout or salmon the yellowfish lie in deep pools and behind big boulders in the river where they wait in ambush.
