Lake Tinaroo is situated in the Cairns hinterland just over an hours drive from the Cairns cbd and is home to some of the biggest barramundi in the country. It is the first ever stocked barramundi impoundment and is well known for many world record captures . The Lake is stocked annually with thousands of fingerlings and they dont stop growing! Generally in the warmer months (September through to May) the barra are more active and easier to catch. These fish can becaught on lure or fly and are more active around certain lunar cycles, the fish movements are more predictable and they are easier to target.
Our guided fishing charters on Lake tinaroo trips are operated around dusk and dawn , we also have an overnight option with accommodation and meals included with two sessions on the lake. The fish feed more actively around the low light periods and our overnight trips give you 2 chances to land that giant barra.
Lake tinaroo doesnt generally provide big catch big numbers of fish each session but the fish that are landed are generally big! We'll only operate our guided trips on tinaroo if the conditions are right, we like to give clients the best chance of landing that big impoundment barramundi. All tackle , snacks and drinks are provided for each charter and fishing licences are aranged by the guide prior to the trip.
