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.
We have designated sites with benches and tables which are available for day visitors. Pre-order from our picnic menu and enjoy nature for the day underneath the poplar trees or grab a bench next to the river, where you can try your luck at some fly fishing along the Dorps river.
Gas braais/ wood braais are available for hire for the day or you are free to bring your own braai. Wood, charcoal, firelighters are all available for purchase at reception.
Day visiting is on a first come first serve basis, we do not take bookings in advance.
Please note that braaing is only permitted during certain seasons, when there is a high risk of veld fires, you will not be allowed to braai.
If you are permitted to braai, please be a responsible human and ensure that your fire is properly extinguished. There is plenty of water in the dams, streams and rivers for you to use.
