Gauteng is the smallest province in South Africa, but is also the economic and financial heart of South Africa. Just an hour’s drive from Johannesburg, the Vaal River forms the southern border of Gauteng, offering great fishing opportunities for Largemouth Yellowfish (Labeobarbus kimberleyensis) and Smallmouth Yellowfish (Labeobarbus aeneus). The Jukskei, Klein-Jukskei and other Rivers up north, west and east boast the Bushveld Smallscale Yellowfish (Labeobarbus polylepis) and the Lowveld Largescale yellowfish (Labeobarbus marequensis). This means that within an hour’s drive the Gauteng Province has access to four of the 9 Yellowfish species of South Africa. Small places do pack a great punch. The urban areas of Gauteng use to boast healthy populations of the Bushveld Smallscale Yellowfish (Labeobarbus polylepis) and the Lowveld Largescale yellowfish (Labeobarbus marequensis), but due to development and pollution in the city areas they are more of a rumour these days. Access to these rivers is also very difficult seeing that most of the banks are private property. The Crocodile, Pienaars and Elands Rivers do have many venues and opportunities to target these two species.
