Roodekoppies Dam

Roodekoppies Dam is one of the well known carp fishing venues in South Africa. The dam is host to many carp tournaments and for very good reason. It holds large numbers of some truely magnificent carp of up to 40lbs with the average specimens around the 8/9kg mark. It is also home to a few crocodiles which makes it a true wild african carp venue.

This year WCCSA competitors will be fishing a mostly unkown stretch of bank with uncoutable features to fish to. This area is also known to hold some of the biggest residents in the dam.
