Orange River Fly Fishing

The Orange River below Vanderkloofdam is one of South Africa’s best kept secrets when it comes to fly-fishing for smallmouth and largemouth yellowfish. The spectacular Orange River is generally regarded as the premier destination for the avid yellowfish Fly-fisherman and this section is arguably the best section of the river. With over 70kms of private river access along the untouched banks of the Orange River, turquoise clear water, plenty of shallow rapids, long slow glides and big pools, the river offers everything the fly-fisherman could ask for, whether it is a trophy largemouth, a smallmouth sipping dryflys in crystal clear water or nymphing for smallmouth in the rapids, the angler will not be disappointed. The solitude mind-blowing fishing is what makes it South Africa’s flagship fly-fishing experience.
