Trout River Falls lies in the heart of the fly-fishing region in Mpumalanga. We have 3 dams and a 2km stretch of the Dorpsriver which offers excellent trout fishing opportunities for both novice and experienced anglers. All of our dams are managed and stocked on a frequent basis to ensure prime fishing conditions for all our guests.
Trout River Falls encourages a catch and release programme
 ONLY! In the event that you damage a fish and you have to kill it, the fish will be charged for at current rates of R275.00 p/kg.

We do not supply any fishing equipment and it is your responsibility to bring along all the necessary gear.
