Things to do while at the Roodeplaat Dam camping site

Roodeplaat Fishing

The Roodeplaat Camping sites which are in the northern section of the Roodeplaat Nature Reserve are perfect for fishing because the northern section of the reserve is zoned for fishing, boating and camping. Fishing at Roodeplaat is either from the shore, boat, tubes or kayaks.

The Roodeplaat Dam has healthy populations of Carp, Bass, Kurper and Barbel and the dam has produced excellent catches of very big Carp and Barbel. Bass catches have also improved over the last 5 years. The best baits for Carp are boilies and brown bread, spinners for Bass and Kurper, and fish heads, chicken liver and Plat-annas for Barbel.

The fishing at Roodeplaat Dam can be hot and cold - very good on one outing and very quiet on the next visit. When you get it on the right day, the fishing at Roodeplaat can be better than at most other fishing spots in the vicinity. Keep a close lookout for fish activity on the surface, sometimes one can see the fish feeding in large numbers on the surface.
