Rising on the slopes of the Mauchsberg
and Mount Anderson catchment area, the Sabie
River flows alongside the town of Sabie to join
the Komati River 30km east of the Mpumalanga -
Mozambique border. For 45km it flows to the
western border of the Kruger National Park and
for a further 64km within Kruger itself, before
heading towards Mozambique to meet the Indian
It is at the source of this pristine
water system, where the Horse Shoe and Lone
Creek streams meet just 9km outside the town
of Sabie, that the Sabie Trout Angling Club
(STAC) has for the past 70 years successfully
managed and controlled approximately 8km of
fine trout fishing waters - considered by many
a fly-fisher to be the best river fishing
venue in Mpumalanga.
Trout Angling Club
We have borrowed from Nature a
piece of her most beautiful
bounty. We respected, nurtured and
maintained it for more than 70
summers so that those who come a
long time after, will still find
it to be the best river
fly-fishing venue in Mpumalanga.
| Working in close
cooperation with forestry the STAC has been
granted access to the property bordering the
Sabie River, enabling members and visitors to
fish these waters.
Beginners and seasoned anglers alike
will find the fishing on offer to be a great
challenge and are guaranteed a pleasant
experience as only nature's best is served
Good catches ranging from 200g to more
than 1kg can be enjoyed and top quality
performance is guaranteed from these predators
who will put your skills and tackle to the
Upon purchase of a permit,
fly fishers will be supplied with a map of the
club waters bearing pool names such as Deep
Pool, Jacob's Pool, Poacher's Pool, as well as
many more - all producers of fine fish.
Popular pools are well marked and bank
clearing is done regularly, however anglers
must bear in mind that river fishing maintains
its natural obstacles and a good day's fishing
will require that extra dedication.
The Sabie Trout Angling Club can also assist
with permits to fish the Blyde River above Pilgrim's Rest
This is where the sun dances on
the water, where fairies in flight place ripples upon
the crystal waters and nature and fisherman compete to
reap the rewards of their labour.
1-Day Fishing Permit: R150
3-Day Fishing Permit: R250
1-Day Access Permit: R50 (non-fishing)
Permits are available from the Merry Pebbles Resort, and Uvuvi Fishing Shop in Sabie,
as well as from Angling and Outdoor in Nelspruit. Everyone on the premises must be in
possession of a valid membership card or a valid day permit.
"A trout is too valuable
to be caught only once." Catch and release
is a practice promoted on this river, provided it is
done with utmost caution and in accordance with
catch-and-release codes of conduct.
