A Trout and Bass Dam

Bass, Carp, Kurper and Catfish

The Trout dam was last stocked with 100 Rainbow Trout on the 6 December 2014 by the Haenertsburg Trout Association and can be confirmed by Andre Cell: 082 570 2782.

The Bass dam is full of Bass, Carp and Curper and does not need to be stocked at all.

There is no cost to fish except for the catch which clients may want to take home and not release back into the dam. Magoebaskloof Getaway gives some of the most exciting fishing in a tranquil and beautiful environment – a great part of the world for trout fishing, bass, kurper, carp and catfish in beautiful settings surrounded by magnificent mountains.

These dams are controlled by Magoebaskloof Getaway and are private dams owned by us.  No day vistiors are permitted anymore as we have found that they do not respect the property and clean up after themselves. Thus only those staying over are allowed to fish.

Permitted hours of angling:

6 am to 6 pm.

Catch and release is prefered so that it gives everyone an opportuity to enjoy fishing in the dams.  Should the fish be injured then you will need to pay per kilogram for the fish.

Regulation fly-fishing methods only, using BARBLESS HOOKS – no spinning or bait fishing is permitted in the Trout dam.

Please treat the dams and surrounding environment with care and respect and ensure that you are honest about your catch or else you will be asked to leave the premises with no compensation.
