Jonkershoek Flyfishing, Stellenbosch

Flyfishing at Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch
Nestled high in the most picturesque valley and protected from the Cape's howling winds, the Jonkershoek flyfishery offer superb flyfishing for both the experienced and the novice angler. The flyfishery operates from the oldest trout hatchery in Southern Africa, started in 1892.
Six trout dams are available on the border of the Jonkershoek Nature reserve. The dams are well stocked with rainbow trout as well as the elusive and sought after Cape Whitefish (Barbus andrewi) one of South Africa’s famous yellowfish species, renowned for their fighting abilities. The best fishing in the dams is over winter, when the trout are performing at their peak, though the Summer offers anglers an excellent opportunity to sight fish for the Cape Whitefish.
A beautiful section of the Eerste River is also available where one can target wild rainbow trout. The best fishing time on the river is during summer, out of spawning season. Booking for the river is essential.
Equipment can be hired from reception. Our staff offer advice and tuition on request. Fly casting and fishing clinics are run on a regular basis and private tuition can also be arranged.
The amenities on the premises include a restaurant area, picnic areas and bathrooms.
Visitors are welcome - this is the perfect place to cast a line...
