Fishing at Heyshope Dam
Heyshope Dam, found on the Assegaai River, is one of the biggest dams in Mpumalanga and in fact in South Africa. Pack a picnic basket, your fishing rods, swimming costume and tents as you head off for a day trip or relaxing weekend break along the water’s edge. With a shoreline of 120km, you’ll surely find a suitable spot to reel in fish. The dam has a reputation as the best place in the country to fish for largemouth bass, but you’ll also find carp and yellowfish in its waters. Locals and seasoned fishermen will tell you to take a boat onto the water if you want to increase your catch. The dam provides a peaceful retreat in nature and is a well-loved place to play sports with your family and friends or settle down with a good book.
