Lakenvlei has been explained as the best fly fishing location in the Western Cape by many anglers. The dam is positioned in the beautiful mountains in Ceres, which is about 2 to 3 hours drive from Cape Town.
There’s a beautiful lake-side cabin that can be rented for those who want to stay over for a night or two and take full advantage of the fishing, alternatively you can go for just a day trip.
Cost: R2,300 per person per day
Fish: Rainbow & Brown Trout
Tackle: Fly fishing only
Catch and Release: Anglers may take 2 fish per day over 35cm in length
