Fishing for Day Visitors

La Ferme is the perfect venue for a picnic. Your own picnic baskets are welcome. The Wemmers River runs through La Ferme. There are natural Brown and Rainbow trout in the river although not easily visible.

We are open from 9-16h00 pm everyday and Sunday from 9-14h30 pm.

La Ferme Fishing

  • All fish are catch and release except the trout from December to March (they die when caught during summer so if you don’t want to buy them you can bring them to the house and we will freeze them).
  • There are four dams stocked with trout, small and large mouth bass, carp, some witvis and tilapia.
  • You don’t have to book to fish, just come along.  Sorry we don’t provide lessons anymore.
  • A guide is not necessary to fish our waters as they are easily accessible.
  • There is no restaurant on the premises.
  • We do have limited permanent tables and chairs under shaded areas, but you are welcome to bring your own fold up chairs and umbrellas and webber braai’s.
