Port Douglas River & Estuary Fishing
This is a calm water experience in smaller boats up to 6m designed for sportfishing.
On shared fishing charters guides normally catch live bait and target species such as barramundi, queenfish, mangrove jack & trevally in the rivers & creeks. Great for kids and first time anglers.
For the specialist, lure and flyfishing charters including river & coastal fishing are available by sole charter only. These trips can include requested croc spotting, mud crabbing, bird watching and photography on private charters. Half or full day charters available.
River and Coastal systems in the region include Daintree River, Muddy Creek, Dickson Inlet, Mowbray River and inshore wrecks and reefs. Preferred targeted species in the river and estuary include barramundi, mangrove jack, fingermark, queenfish and trevally to name a few.
Coastal Inshore species weather permitting can include bigger trevally species, nannygai, mackerel, coral trout and monster fingermark by private charter.
