Re: Germiston Lake

Hi Charles!

Unfortunately I do not have first-hand info about whether fishing is currently allowed at Germiston Lake. Maybe someone in the vicinity who knows will post a response OR perhaps you could telephone the council (municipality) offices and find out OR just go there and see for yourself ...

Tight Lines, Buddy!

Hi Matt!

Most waters around JHB should have Bass, even the Jukskei River and ponds on golf courses (try a Jitterbug at night to find out!).

Other places which have Bass would be Emmarentia Dam, Swartkoppies Dam (Jackson's Drift), Florida Lake and Germiston Lake. The Blaupan (Kempton Park area near an old drive-in theater) also reputedly has Bass.

Perhaps some other visitors to the this Forum would care to share info on Bass fishing spots around JHB?

Also enquire at tackle shops in your area or contact your local Bassmasters fishing club (see for contact details of Bass clubs).

Do keep us posted on what you find out and how successful you are!

Good fishing to you and thanks for using the Forum!
