Trout Haven – Dwarsberg Fly Fishing

I recently took a trip to Dwarsberg, just next to Rawsonville, to a place called Trout Haven. Trout Haven is all about fishing the Western Cape Streams and that’s exactly what I did. I only had one full day on the rivers, so I was up early, waders on and ploughing my way through the ice cold water trying to snag a rainbow or two. The venue is fantastic and the setting is stunning, so it’s really worth going for a few days.

I managed to catch 1 rainbow, not a very big one, but it put up a decent fight and I was pleased to have landed it. I’m still a novice, so I can imagine someone who has fished the streams a lot would be pulling out quite a few as I saw a lot jumping for mayflies.

Here are some photographs I snapped:
