Fishing

Riverside has 3 dams stocked with rainbow and brown trout. These dams are open all year round and are stocked annually with trout from the local Kamberg Trout Hatchery.
You can fish for Wild Brown Trout along both banks of a 6km stretch of the Mooi River, one of the last remaining Wild Brown Trout rivers.



River fishing is closed from the 31st May until the 1st September.

There is a Bellís Kamberg Flyfishing Festival held annually, usually during the month of April or May. Contact us for more details.
