Guided Fishing in Cape Town, South Africa.

Cape Town, with the icy Atlantic and the warm Indian oceans just about colliding on its doorstep, has a deep fishing history. From the 1800’s many hamlets and communities around the Cape Peninsula relied on fishing for subsistence. And some still do. In Kalk Bay and Hout Bay you can still see traditional fishing vessels coming home with their catch and many Capetonians enjoy going down to meet the boats and haggle with the locals.

Though seas around the world are under pressure from over-fishing, Cape waters are still relatively abundant and deep-sea fishing operators will get you out onto the cold Atlantic which has some of the richest tuna grounds in the world. Other game fish like dorado, snoek, mako and yellowtail all put in appearances.

The cool streams that tumble pool-to-pool down Cape Town’s mountainous regions offer tranquil freshwater fishing as do many picturesque farm dams.
