Excellent fishing facilities are available at several dams within the Usutu Forest, which are well stocked with trout and operated by the Usutu Forest Fly Fishing Ckub. Fishing is also available on other dams and rivers within the country, including within Malolotja Nature Reserve and Hawane Dam in the north west, and at Van Eck Dam near Big Bend in the south east. Most rivers contain indigenous fish, such as yellow fish, bream and barbel. Tiger fish may be caught in the lowveld areas during the hot season. Most accommodation will assist guests who wish to participate by advising on the rules around fishing in Eswatini. It is essential to either obtain a permit before setting off to fish, or pay a rod fee (whichever applies).
