Trout Fishing At The Equator!
The Aberdare rivers offer some of the best trout fishing spots in Kenya. Chania, Gura and Amboni rivers are all worth a cast and although the trouts are small, they are plentiful. The brown and rainbow trout found in these rivers are not indigenous to Kenya. They trace their origins back to Lock Leven in Scotland, from where they were first imported into Kenya in 1905 by Lt. Colonel Ewart Grogan. The best fishing areas are generally found above the 2,000m level. It generally goes that the higher the altitude, the smaller the trout.
Mt. Kenya’s tarns (Lake Rutundu and Lake Alice) offers the finnest trout fishing in East Africa. Rainbow trout of above two pounds are the “average” and monsters of six to eight pounds are frequently encountered. At Lake Rutundu, a boat/punt is provided and there are three casting platforms.
