The best river fishing is generally from May to November in the Mzimvubu river. Many species of fish live in this sub tropical region but the main river fish are Kob (salmon), Garrick & Grunter. During the spring & summer months Carp can be fished. You can fish in the sea all year round, where you can catch Blacktail, Mussel Cracker, Bronze Bream, and many, many more. Please fish for the future...
Love the fishing there...
