Dwarsberg Trout Haven, Rawsonville

Dwarsberg Fly Fishing Rawsonville

Dwarsberg Trout Haven is nestled in the spectacular Breede Valley in the Cape Winelands. Situated on the banks of the Holsloot river, Dwarsberg offers the perfect spot for fly fishing and family getaways.

The pristine, clear, Holsloot River, which flows through the picturesque Stettynskloof valley and Trout Haven, offers one of the finest dry fly venues in the country. The Holsloot River rewards delicacy in approach, tackle and tactics – the most poetic form of fly fishing.The venue is fantastic and the setting is stunning, so it’s really worth going for a few days.

The dam at the head of the valley, that supplies the nearby town of Worcester with its water, creates a tailwater fishery, ensuring a constant supply of cool water in the Cape’s hot, dry summers when other rivers in the area become too warm for trout fishing.

“We kitted up and headed for the river. Outside, the astonishing scale of the mountains which cup the valley through which the Holsloot meanders took my breath away.” Les Morison, PISCATOR, Journal of the Cape Piscatorial Society , November 1999

“Some stretches where the riverbed is studded with waving, emerald-green water grass, the trout sitting tightly between the tufts, will remind you of an English chalkstream”.  From “Cape Crusade” by Tom Sutcliffe in the December 2005 issue of the British magazine, Fly Fishing & Fly Tying.

The five, fully equipped self-catering cottages accommodates up to 33 people sharing. The three campsites with ablution facilities, hot water and power points accommodate three groups of 20 people each. The newly built Conference Centre caters for corporate and private functions and intimate weddings, in an idyllic natural setting.
