Fishing the Vaal River @ Candy's
Guests staying over at Candy’s have the use of 1km of waterfrontage for fishing, picnics, walks, etc.
June and July are our rain free winter months and the river is at its clearest.
During these months, fisherman will enjoy catching a varied amount of fresh water species, such as Carp, Barble (Cat fish) and the very powerful Yellow fish.
Bass are also in abundance but catching these in the winter months is a bit more tricky but very rewarding.
The yellow fish are most sought after by sport anglers and they are extremely exciting when caught using a fly rod.
The carp in the river grow to weights up to 12-15 kilograms with many species between 3 and 8kg’s. These fish are readily caught from the banks of the Vaal river all along the Vaaloewer river area.
