The Iron Crown Clubhouse (Still Waters)

GPS E23 92.8 N 29 98.4

Ebenezer Dam plays an important part in the HTA’s history. The club is situated in what was once the old sailing club’s premise and has five basic chalets – each sleeping four, camping sites and a modern and clean ablution block. In accordance with a decision taken by the majority of members, there is no electricity but there is hot water, once provided by a donkey boiler but now generated by gas geysers – a recent concession to the reduction of global warming.

During winter, Ebenezer provides fantastic fishing for large trout and a five kg monster was caught recently on a lure by a bass angler. In summer Fly fishermen  can hook trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass, red breast and blue kurper, barbell and huge carp that regularly take dry flies.

Bag limit – 2 fish, no brown Trout may be kept.

This is the club’s renowned jewel of the still waters for its wild rainbow and brown trout that breeds in the upper reaches of the Broederstroom, its main feeder. This is one of the few dams in the country were stocking is not necessary.

The trout in this 28 hectare impoundment are a Scandinavian strain. Subtly patterned and displaying the most delicate colours and these wild fish seldom exceed 35 centimetres.
