Bokong River Fishing

Bokong River Fishing: This past week at Makhangoa Community Camp in Lesotho presented a medley of challenges and delights. Diminished water levels posed difficulties in luring the yellow fish to dry flies, while the trout awaited cooler temperatures, leaving the river in a state of limbo and making fishing more demanding than anticipated, resulting in a decreased fish count. Nevertheless, favorable weather, delectable cuisine, and delightful company rendered it a memorable week, with some commendably sized fish still being caught.

Overcoming Challenges on the Bokong and Malibamatsu Rivers

The diminished water levels tested the adaptability and perseverance of the guides in making informed decisions and locating the fish. Ultimately, amidst the Bokong and Malibamatsu Rivers, the guides’ expertise and determination prevailed, enabling clients to reel in some respectable catches. Despite the continued challenge of technical fishing throughout the week, the guides’ strategic approach allowed clients to experience the exhilaration of battling with these seemingly elusive yellow fish.

Stories, Optimism, and Ant Hatches on the Bokong River

Evenings spent gathered around the campfire fostered camaraderie between guests and guides, with the sharing of fishing anecdotes becoming the highlight of each night. Though the fishing may not have yielded the anticipated results, optimism pervaded, with hopes for brighter days ahead and the eagerly awaited arrival of the trout. As the week drew to a close, the emergence of an ant hatch enticed the yellow fish, offering spectacular moments on the dam and making the river’s inhabitants more amenable to dry fly tactics. This provided a splendid conclusion, allowing clients to savor nearly the full potential of the Bokong’s waters.

It was another exceptional week at Makhangoa Community Camp – until next time, tight lines and happy fishing!
