The Spekboom River runs through the Elandsdoorn Conservancy, on which LepÍllÍ Lodge is situated. Approximately 9km of river front is accessible for

the avid fly angler.  This stretch of river has been meticulously protected over the last 15 years. As a result, small-scale and large-scale

Yellow fish populations are extremely healthy with abundant opportunity for targeting trophy size fish.

All in all six of the indigenous 16 species of fish can be successfully targeted on fly. The conservancy consists of a large variety of rapids, runs and

large pools, enabling the fly angler to target the resident species with relative success.

Abundant fauna provides welcomed distraction while fishing, but caution is needed for resident crocodiles and hippo.
Best times for targeting Yellows in the crystal clear stream are March to May and August to November, but in dry seasons these species are successfully

targeted throughout the year.

Fishing strategy predominantly consists of sight fishing.  Spekboom small and large- scale yellow fish are notoriously difficult to land as the take can be

extremely subtle. However, fishing is still very good due to the abundant opportunities the angler will be presented with during a session on the river.
This is truly a remarkable fishery in terms of population sizes, health and biodiversity, making it a must do for any avid species fly angler.
