Sundowner Adventures offers day fishing for adults & children in a safe and secure environment. This is a great way to spend time in the outdoors with social distancing. Low season (1 Oct to 14 April) is summer time and we allow bass, bait, specimen carp and fly fishing. High season (15 April to 31 Sep) is winter trout season and only fly fishing is permitted. We are eco-friendly, promoting catch and release of fish (although trout may be kept and paid for by arrangement). Sport fishing a fun adventure for individuals, couples and families.
Fly-fishing is an art and clean (no grubby bait!). It is good exercise but you don't a high fitness level.
The fishing equipment is available for hire, however you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer. Fishing flies or lures can be bought on site.
We often have fishing monitors on duty to provide guidance on the fishing rules/regulations and to assist with ensuring you have a wonderful experience. They will provide some basic fishing tips but if you want to learn more or have never fishing before then feel free to book one of our group or private fishing lessons.
We believe in keeping the sport environmentally friendly so all fish caught must be released (And we teach guests the proper techniques required for correctly releasing the fish so that they do not get injured). The dams have Trout (Rainbow, Brown and Golden), Bass, Carp, Kurper and Cat fish.
The fishing is done on the two dams at Lanseria Country Estate. We are open for fishing seven days a week in low season and often close off Monday during high season to rest the trout after weekends.

Loved the fly fishing introduction that we did with Sundowner at Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa with my boys. A perfect way to spend the day fishing. Great environment and also loved learning from the knowledgeable staff there. Perfect place to learn and to enjoy something special with my boys too.
