Fishing at Cahora Bassa
It is recommended that anglers provide their own tackle, however tackle for spinning and trolling (not fly) can be hired at the Lodge.
Angling is generally good throughout the year. Tiger fish up to 14kg were caught in the dam, with the average weight from 4 to 8kg. Lines with breaking strains from 8 to 20kg and rods and reels to suit are generally used.
The best angling results are obtained when angling from boats. Fly fishing : Ugezi Tiger Lodge is a fly fishing haven – the biggest tiger on fly up-to-date has been 4.5kg
Cast & Spinning - For Tiger fish spinners (No 3 to 5) with silver or polished red copper blades and red reflecting stickers on the outside or polished red copper Efzet or Toby spoons give good results when trolled or cast.Use keel sinkers ± 500mm in front of spinners when trolling to prevent twisting of the line.
