Hi All,

Can anyone recommend any good fishing spots for Bass, Carp and Barbel.

We are looking for a day fishing spot somewhere between the berg and Pietermaritzburg. Ideally we would like to fish a river but dam suggestions will also be helpful.

We have fished the local rivers around Pietermaritzburg but we are quickly growing frustrated as the waters are filthy and polluted and don't seem to hold much fish.

We are trying to find a nice clear and clean river preferably not more than 100km from Pietermaritzburg, also we use coffee grinder and baitcaster reels so areas which are strictly fly fishing won't be suitable for us.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Upper mooi river. Yellows and trout. Follow it on google maps and you will come across a few spots

Hi, thanks for the feedback. Would that be before or after spring grove dam?
