Clifton offers first class trout fishing in either of the two well stocked large
dams. Trophy trout of over eight pounds have been caught, mainly due to the
large size of the dams and the low numbers of anglers fishing these pristine
waters. The rod fee is R80.00 per angler per day. In order to ensure future
catches of trophy trout, Clifton encourages barbless, catch and release fly
fishing however you may keep two fish per day should you wish to eat your catch.
