Eeerrmm not now. Recent sewage spills due to load shedding have caused issues with water quality here. Algal blooms will probably follow soon.

Good to hear Rory. No more dead fish around? Coliform counts are very high and I would worry more about turning yellow. (Hepatitis). :eusa_sick:

Howsit chaps. Weed-eater went through there on Wednesday and so water was extremely dirty over the whole dam - didn't catch a thing. Spoke to one of the guys with a house there and he also mentioned spills as a result of loadshedding - there has been a big drop in water quality in the last month. From crystal clear to very green and murky.

Other than that though, the fishing is usually good. Lots of small fish to be taken on plastics and on the surface in the evenings and mornings.

I saw the fresh piles on the bank on Friday morning. Was very quiet too.
Let's hope it clears up soon and the bite comes back.

Stopped by there for a few minutes after picking up a float tube. Thanks Nathan! The weeds are piled up all over the banks and the water is very dirty. Lots of floating weeds. At least it didn't have that raw sewage stink about it. Although that could've been cause the South easter was pumping.
