Fishing Waters

Witbank Dam

Witbank Dam, built in 1971, has the main purpose of supplying municipal and industrial water, but has grown into a fisherman’s paradise over the years. Its main water supply comes rom the Olifants River and it has a fairly sandy bottom.

The Witbank Dam is situated in Witbank and has a capacity of around 104 million cubic of water and has total surface of 1,211.2 hectares.
Next to the dam there is the Witbank Holiday Resort that caters for the whole family as well as the angler. It has a couple of chalets as well as camping and caravanning facilities, swimming pools, parks, mini golf and braai facilities. Fish here mostly get caught during the night.

Tzaneen Dam

This dam is roughly 1,163,6 hectares big and holds around 157 million cubic of waters. After being built in 1976 as an irrigation supply to farms, the dam has sprung into majestic beauty for the angler and his whole family alike.

The Tzaneen Dam is situated just outside the town of Tzaneen in Limpopo and is under management of the Department of Water Affairs. The main water supply to this dam comes from both the Ramadiepa and the Groot Letaba rivers. Although the dam is actually man made, it melts into nature so perfectly that one would think it was part of nature, a natural lake. For more fishing info on the Tzaneen Dam visit the official site.
