Good day,

I have fished there few years back, not much success though, water is very deep there and many obstacles, seen a few small carp come out ( guys fishing boilies), and some small kurper by the reeds on earthworm, very tough fishing, sure if you put in more time you will get results.

Regards

Thank you very much i have caught lots of barbel there the last while on live bait so it seems to be fishing well at the moment , the issue i seem to be having is getting the bigger cats turned before they reach the structure.

My ondervinding is gebruik J tipe hoeke kleiner as gewoonlik 8/0 of 6/0 mustad hoodlums werk mooi om n vinniger hookup te kry en dan swaarder tools... 50 tot 80 pond baid met .9mm leader en 6 tot 9 foot bootstok en sodra die vis aan is... FORCE IT!

Hi Brandon,

Which dams in Edenvale are worth trying for barbel or bass other than the quarry?

I was under the impression that modderfontein dam was not open to fishing?

From the website:
FISHING: Fishing in any of the dams or bodies of water within the reserve is strictly prohibited unless an arrangement has been made with Reserve Management.

I have previously tried to contact management but have not received any responses.

yes i have and had lots of success as well the cats there for some reason surface abnormaly lot , and makes it easy to tarket them look where they surface and drop your lure there bounce it one or two times on bottom and wait about 10 seconds for stike or cast again , there is a video on youtube where they target cats on artlure at dowerglen dam
