Misty Lakes (SACS Venue)

Mist Lakes is situated 10 kilometres west of Ventersdorp in the North West Province. The lake is managed by SACS and R90 000 was spent by the owners of the lake to upgrade it for SACS members. New gravel swims were created and a modern ablution block was build for the use of SACS members. It has 2 showers and toilets with warm running water.

The lake have 5 swims available with various structures that can be reached from each swim. Between swim 1 and 2 there is an island which can be targeted as a prominent visible structure. From the swims there can also be fished near reeds on the other side of the lake and the old river bed are easily within range.

It is a difficult venue and big carp are not caught easily. Carp of 8-10 kg are frequently landed. Reports was received from SACS members of various big carp that could not be turned and got snagged up in underwater structure. According to the owner of the lake a carp of 23 kilograms was landed from the lake some years ago. It seems that they are there waiting to be caught but the big fish won't make it easy to be landed.
