FISHING SPOTS – Ebenezer Dam, Magoebaskloof Dam, Stanford Lake, Lakeside or Tzaneen Dam.
In a country where water shortages in several parts are a sad and cruel reality, Tzaneen is extremely blessed with not one, but three large bodies of water – and then some. In general, it means enough drinking water, water for crops, gardens and recreation.
However, there is a specie of people who jump for joy for a totally different reason – the fisherfolk. The area around Tzaneen lends itself ideally to fishing – in a variety of pristine places.
Concerning trout fishing: A visitor to the area may purchase a permit for 1 rod for the day at R150 or for a week at R600. The fishing will be done at Stanford Lake dam or Lakeside Dam. Bookings with Poppie or Jenny at 015 276 4765. A non-member permit will be issued and must be kept for display to any HTA member wanting to see it.

Tzaneen Dam – Tzaneen Dam was built in 1976. The dam was originally created to supply the farmers with irrigation water.
Even though the dam is man made it melts in so perfectly with the surroundings that you would think that it is a natural lake. Tzaneen dam receives its water from both the Groot Letaba and the Ramadiepa rivers.
How to bait them:
Carp Bait: yellow mealie (maize) pips, white maize and Tiger Nuts
Yellow Fish Bait: Mealies and earthworms.
Barbel / Catfish Bait: Platannas and Earthworms.
