Trip Information


Fly Fishing Cape York

Red dirt roads and remote river systems, Cape York is an iconic part of Northern Australia. It is no secret that Cape York is a fishing mecca. From large T.Anak Permit to hard fighting Barramundi this is one of the most exciting places to bend a fly rod Downunder.

Cape York offers an extensive array of fly fishing terrain and it is not uncommon to encounter over twenty-five species in a weeks fishing.

Anak Permit, an endemic species of Australia is a huge draw card for the Cape York flats, along with Blue Bastards, Golden Trevally, Tuskies, and the odd large GT. The river systems are full of life – Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, and Queenfish are all regularly encountered.

Our Charters offer all-inclusive packages staying at The Cape Lodge utilising our 3 flats hybrid skiffs at a maximum of 6 anglers per week.

Join us for an unforgettable adventure to Cape York.
