Massingir Dam Tiger Fishing

The Massingir Dam is fed by the Olifants River and is situated in the south west of Mozambique. All the rivers flowing off South Africa's Great Eastern Escarpment have natural populations of Tiger Fish in the lower reaches in the Lowveld and Mozambique. These rivers include the Olifants, Sabie, Komatie, Sand and the Pongola River, which is the southern most range of the Tiger Fish.

Tiger fishing in Massingir Dam is similar to tiger fishing in Lake Kariba, Cahora Bassa and the Jozini Dam, with fishermen having good success on spinners, spoons, fly and a variety of baits including sardine, chicken livers and live Tilapia and other species.

The upper reaches of the Massingir Dam, where the Olifants river flows in, are shallow and usually produce fish. These shallow areas are home to a variety of small fish which the tiger fish prey on and is a good place to find big tiger fish feeding. There are also hundreds coves around the dam with good structure in the form of vegetation, dead trees and drop-offs.

Be aware that permits are now required for boating and fishing at Massingir. Covane Lodge will assist clients in this regard. Covane Lodge also has a slipway and easy access to good fishing areas.

Much has ben said about the netting in Massingir, but the truth is that the tiger fish populations are still very healthy. The main target species for the gill netting is the Tilapia, which is also a prolific breeder and still occurs in huge numbers in the Dam.
