fishing hotspots

The Finniss River

Located on the southern boundary of Finniss River Station and just short drive from the Lodge, the Finniss River offers the best of both worlds. Saltwater estuary fishing yields varieties such as barramundi, threadfin salmon and jewfish, whilst the intertidal zone upstream is home to freshwater species including saratoga, tarpon and of course more barramundi.

Bynoe Harbour

Just 20 minutes’ drive north east of Finniss River Lodge is one of the great dry season hot spots… Bynoe Harbour.

Bynoe offers pristine creeks for chasing barramundi, salmon and mud crabs, with plenty of queenfish around the foreshores. Its deep channel out to sea is studded with ledges that hold all the usual reef fish, along with goldies and jewfish. The Crab Claw Jetty Artificial Reef and Simms Reef are great places to try for big jewfish. If it’s windy, Bynoe Harbour offers plenty of sheltered spots to ensure a great day out.

Combine a half day’s fishing in Bynoe Harbour with a heli trip to Litchfield National Park for an exceptional full day excursion from Finniss River Lodge.

Beyond the Station

The Ocean

Boasting 15 kilometres of coastline, Finniss River Station provides angling opportunities along the coast and out to sea.

Our fishing charters will get you out to the bluewater in no time. Here you can find trevally, queenfish, mackerel and tuna. For reef species, bottom bouncing always produces good results.

Heli fishing & boat fishing is an additional cost.
Ask our friendly reservation team for more information.
