Fishing on The Orange River

Activities

Fish that can be caught on the Orange are Small-mouth and Large-mouth Yellowfish. You will also be able to catch Orange River Mud-fish, and maybe barbell or even Carp. The average Smallmouth run between 1kg to 2.7kg but many guests have caught double digit fish. The Large-mouth can get really big – up to 6.8kgs .

Czech nymphing is very effective above, in and at the tail-outs of the rapids. You can also use indicator nymph as well as cast large streamers up and across for Large mouth Yellows. This is a big river necessitating aggressive wading – wading boots are an absolute must and chest waders do make things a lot more comfortable.

Tackle wise you can use rods from #3 to #6 – some guests have had incredible fun on even lighter rods! Good quality reels are important because these fish are incredibly strong and use the current to their best advantage. The flies that can be used are heavily weighted Czech nymphs, bead head nymphs, caddis larva imitations, atomic worms and small general purpose nymphs as well as a selection of streamer pattern flies. Waterproof flyboxes come into their own as you will take an involuntary swim from time to time and a net helps to land fish quickly.

The fishing on the Orange River is very exciting – sometimes the takes are so soft and subtle that they are very easy to miss while other times they smash the flies really hard. It is a great trip to do and combined with a bit of catch and release fishing……the fish in the Orange will certainly put a serious bend in your rod!!!
