Hotfire has access to a large amount of private, fresh waters. The large and beautiful Swart Kei River, to the crystal mountain streams of the “Southern Drakensburg”, offer anglers to practice their craft in some of the most spectacular settings. Fishing conditions are good year round; however some of the rivers can become unfishable for a short time after heavy rains. Alternative fishing spots in dams and lakes are then utilised. The rivers and dams offer an excellent diversity of species for anglers to pursue while on safari. Fish species include; Yellowfish, Rainbow and Brown Trout, and Bass.
Out of province/country fishing trips for tigerfish and various bream species can be arranged by Hotfire Hunting and Fishing Safaris.
Fly fishing, bait fishing and spinning are all productive and fishing tackle and equipment can be provided. A policy of catch and release is preferred however certain species can be kept for the pot.
