    Where can you recommend on the Vaal for decent accommodation and opportunity to catch bass and carp this weekend (11 Jan) . This is a birthday trip for my son and I really want him to catch some fish. Weather forecasts rain this weekend so not sure if this is the best weekend ?
    We are from JHB and have tried most of the commercial dams in and around here with not much success. (Muldersdrfit – all the dams, Rietvlei Alberton etc) Hence we thought the vaal maybe a better option
    Your advice would be sincerely appreciated

    Where or close to what place on the map is Tannie Grieta se plaas

      Hi Dawie,

      I searched all over other Vaal Dam maps and I eventually found it. I’ve now added Tannie Griet Se Plaas to our Vaal Dam map so please have a look again. I can’t confirm that it’s the correct location but it’s all I could find.

      Something else I learned is that it’s a club comp fishing venue only. Again I’m not sure if that’s true but it’s mentioned on another site.

      Hope that helps!

    Hi Guys, hope you well? Which spots would you recommend for day trip on the Vaal dam?

    ek beplan om saam my pa oor die naweek van die 27-29ste mei te gaan visvang , maar ons sukkel verskriklik om n plek te kry met n chalet vir 5 mense wat komberse verskaf. Het julle enige opsies ?, so naby as moontlik aan pretoria vir n redelike prys ?

      Hi Waldo,

      Wat is julle budget?
      Hoe ver is julle bereid om te ry?

      Daar is regtig verskriklik baie plekke om van te kies maar gebaseer op wat jy alklaar genoem het (naby en nie te duur) kan jy miskien kyk na die volgende twee plekke langs die Vaal Rivier:
      Sugar Bush Bay
      Impact Self catering

      Ek glo hulle behoort komberse te voorsien. Kyk maar net op ons kaarte om die plekke te sien.
