Fishing on the Douw Steyn Dam

Catch of the Day

The Douw Steyn Dam is the largest man-made lake in southern Africa, extending over 30 hectares, and is home to indigenous fish species as well as hippos and crocodiles.
Here you can enjoy fishing in calm waters or in the river streams on the reserve. Drop in a lureĀ and see what bounty the day will bring. You will most likely catch Largemouth Bass which is the most common fish species in the area. Our Chef will also be on hand to assist in preparing your catch of the day should you like.
