Strap on your boots & set off up stream to enjoy the tranquil surrounds of our tropical waterways. The upper reaches of our river systems and tributarys provide excellent fishing for jungle perch and sooty grunter. Both these species can be targeted on lure or fly and its a great option for the southern trout fisherman wanting to escape the cold. Mostly fishing top water with small poppers and bug profiles to entice the bite, the larger sooties can be caught in the deep with small plastics. A level of fitness is required for these expeditions. This is a unique tour option for the Far North Queensland region and a true way to experience fishing with a the rainforest mountain backdrop.
