are needed to enter Arnhem Land. Limited access and remoteness
ensures fish populations are relatively untouched.

the rivers and lagoons, reef fish including coral trout, golden
snapper and giant trevally and pelagics such as Spanish mackerel
and queenfish in coastal waters as well as mangrove jack.
| Best time of year
|| Fishing is generally good all
year round though access is not possible during the wet season
from January to March.
|| Access is by four wheel drive
vehicle and light aircraft from Darwin.
|| Comfortable safari
camp accommodation, lodges and motherships.
