The Invermooi Fly Fishing Experience

Our Trout dams are stocked and ready for your big catch!

If you want a premier trout fly fishing holiday, you have to experience Fly Fishing at Invermooi Estate.
The location is ideal for both avid fly fisherman and non-anglers alike and the Estate boasts two exquisite dams and 8km of natural river fishing.

MacNab Dam


MacNab Dam has been a top producing Trout dam for over a decade and has recently been added to the WildFly management portfolio. With luxury accommodation and the full range of family activities, it is the ideal fly fishing getaway. The water is often just slightly off colour, which helps mask your presence, these conditions have consistently performed with both Brown and Rainbow Trout. The largest Trout to date was a 62cm Rainbow! Of the many hot spots, the left-hand bank facing the inlet is a solid bet.

Malachite Dam


Malachite Dam is located just below MacNab and above the majestic Mooi river (the finest Brown Trout river in South Africa) which also runs through this beautiful farm. Here the fishing is only surpassed by the birdlife and scenery. Jetties and casting decks make for good casting points. However, using the boats onsite or fishing from your float tube is the best bet to cover this big body of water. The largest fish to be recently recorded measured a solid and impressive 58cm.

The Invermooi estate section of the Mooi River the “Little Mood” is 8km long and is set in the pristine KZN Midlands among the foothills of the beautiful Drakensberg Mountains. The Mooi River is by far the best Brown Trout river in South Africa.

Trout were introduced into the little Mooi river in the early 50’s and since then have been spawning naturally in the wild. If you are up for a real challenge and want to put your skills to the test, then this stretch of river is for you!

With varying shorelines, no experience will be the same. Book your KZN Midlands stay with us today and experience fly fishing as it truly should be.

The stretch of river is closed for three months of the year to allow for undisturbed spawning. The river opens again in September for the new season.
