Bass Fishing in Stellenbosch

Bass fishing in Stellenbosch is possible at a number of venues including private and public places.

Fishing for bass is best in spring and fall with the summer months also providing good action. Winter months are cooler and the bass tend to slow down going to deeper waters making fishing for them challenging.

A public location to fish for both smallmouth and largemouth bass is Wiesenhof off the R44 Road between the N1 highway and Stellenbosch. The park has 3 different dams with bass, 1 being quite large and visitors can access all dams including the larger one for a fee. Boats with electric motors are also available for hire. Catch and release is the practice here. For more information visit Wiesenhof Wildpark.

There are other private venues in the area but visitors should seek permission to both enter and fish on private land, some farm owners may not be keen on visitors.
