The Ultimate Barramundi, Sport, Fly and Reef Fishing Destination

If you’re looking forward to great Runoff fishing in 2017, it’s impossible to ask for a better wet season.

Following steady Build-up rain right from September, the Top End’s first monsoon arrived the week prior to Christmas and lingered well into the week after New Year. Heavy rainfalls were reported around Darwin and the Daly district south west of Darwin. Arnhem Land copped a deluge as well.  All the major Top End rivers were swollen with above average falls over January.

AND THEN THE SKIES REALLY OPENED UP IN FEBRUARY…
A massive deluge literally drowned the Top End early February, with falls approaching 400mm in just three days.
It certainly was great news for Darwin local anglers as all the big rivers within a day trip of Darwin were well and truly flooding. The Barra Lodge sure didn’t miss out. Serious monsoonal rainfall was widespread with great falls right through Arnhem Land where places like Maningrida received more than 100mm of rain in a day. The huge river catchments and floodplains that feed into the Barra Lodge’s big tidal rivers  have been  overflowing with life-giving fresh waters. It developed into an inland sea so amazing Runoff fishing  was  assured. Watch the Newsletters as we report  incredible barra fishing action   now that  the Runoff fishing season  is under way .
