Lake Lintrose Cottages

Seated along the Eastern shoreline of what was previously a wild Brown Trout River, and is now a 1000-hectare dam, this provides a very unique fly fishing experience.

With 5 distinct species on offer, which no other dam in the world can boast, depending on the season you could encounter Rainbow or Brown Trout, Small and Large mouth Bass as well as Yellow-fish.

This comfortable self-catering accommodation on the shoreline gives you bank access to these opportunities. The water level of Spring Grove dam fluctuates in each season, revealing very productive structure around which you can target a wide variety of fish species. This dam is fortunate to stay clean all year round and Trout fishing is optimal between the months April and August, in which only fly fishing is permitted.

Lintrose Cottages are exclusively situated in close enough proximity to Nottingham Road, allowing you to enjoy and explore everything the meander has to offer.

Lazy Boyz

To tube or not to tube shouldn’t be a dilemma. Although targeting Trout from the bank and stalking a fish is the way to go on arrival at any dam (as long as you get there at the proverbial crack of), to not jump in your float tube when fishing any decent sized dam is just limiting your options.

Sandstone Cottage

Cradled in the Kamberg Valley, peering out at the Drakensberg mountains and kilometers of rolling hills and mountains sits the exquisite Sandstone Farm.

Home to retired racehorses and polo ponies, it has two of the most productive still water Trout dams in this area; easily accessible and large enough to enjoy float tubing. 

Plover dam is fed by two rich springs which support established weed beds where Rainbow Trout are resident.

Ten pounds is the current dam record! Sandpiper dam is crystal clear, a preferred dry fly water, where you can also tempt an elusive Brown Trout when the conditions are right. 

Hosts Graham and Sue Armstrong have built this stunning self-catering accommodation and provide that extra special touch of country hospitality that has guests planning their next trip before departing.

The Kitchen Sink

What to throw at the problem is the @#$%&$! problem. That fish are fussy, no frustrated angler will argue about and when it comes to fly fishing for Trout the debate quickly devolves into fly patterns?

Hemyock Farm

This premier Brown Trout River has a pedigree of over 100 years of natural spawning and is South Africa’s premier wild fishery.

This private section of the Mooi River continues to produce the best dry fly action in the country.

But we all know that big Browns also enjoy a big meal, and these exclusive river-beats have showcased some of the largest wild Brown Trout recorded.

Hence, these WildFly managed waters remain a private fly-fishing concession that is able to offer its clients one of the most exceptional wild Trout encounters to be found in Africa.

Hemyock is an opulent country lodge, designed for exclusive functions and small corporate gatherings, complete with catering options. Only resident guests and guided fly fishing is permitted on the Northern bank of this remarkable river.

Timing is Everything

When to throw a line? “Whenever I get a chance!” is a knee jerk response and only too true ,as we very often don’t have the luxury of choosing our leisure windows.



Nestled below the Kamberg mountain, surrounded by Trout dams, and bordered by the Mooi River and its acclaimed wild Brown Trout, lies Invermooi estate.

With 5 private still waters to choose from, fly fishing options abound.

The river season is open from September to May giving you the unique opportunity to bag both a Rainbow and a Brown Trout in the same day.

Invermooi is the ultimate country getaway for visitors seeking some respite from the hustle and bustle: secluded self-catering cottages peppered throughout the property provide guests with the privacy to take advantage of the scenic views, hiking trails, and mountain-biking routes provided.

With conference facilities, a function venue and the ‘Fish Eagle’ bistro, it is the ideal location to host a gathering or just unwind and catch-up on some essential family time.

Midlands Trout Season

The first frosts of the season is something worth celebrating from a Winter fishing perspective. It is a time in which the Trout embrace the colder water temperatures and feed a little more aggressively before they switch into spawning mode.
