The Orange river fishing is the perfect fisherman’s adventure
These fishing trails are perfect for the fisherman seeking some of the best opportunities of tag and release fishing. We use 2 man inflatable rafts on our fishing trips. The 4-day Orange River fishing trails will start and end at our base camp The Growcery Camp. We make our final preparations at camp, before embarking on our fishing adventure.
We spend the next 3 nights along the banks of the Orange River. The ideal location for the large mouth yellow fish and large catfish. Fish include big-mouth yellow fish, small mouth yellow fish, tilapia, catfish, bottom feeders (mudfish) and carp.
