We have three dams. Adjoining the entertainment area is the “kiddies dam”. This is a perfect place to coach fishermen and fisherwomen of the future while giving them a hands-on opportunity to catch their own trout.The dam’s size and position allows constant surveillance by the youngster’s minders. We allow all angling methods in this dam.
The other two dams are for more serious fishermen. Away from the “entertainment area” they are sited amongst the natural vegetation. The smaller of the two is an easily fished dam that will not provide too many hook-ups for the fairly inexperienced fly fishermen. For the more ambitious, the bottom of the third and largest dam has been contoured so trout are fished for either with dry flies in the shallows or with sinking rigs in water up to 4 meters deep (and of course anything in-between). All three dams are well stocked with rainbow trout - the big dam also holds some nice brown trout.
Trout: All trout caught must be kept and paid for. “Catch and release” does not work in this environment and most trout put back will die. The fish are weighed and cleaned by our staff and kept refrigerated until you are ready to take them home.
