Top End Sport Fishing Trips

A lure casters dreamland and a fly-fishers Nirvana

The top end of the Northern Territory has long been on the radar of die hard fishermen. With huge tidal rivers, inland billabongs and offshore reefs, it is a sport fishing hotspot. The list of species an angler can encounter here, is indeed a long one. With Angling Adventures, we can help you book your dream trip and find the best fisheries in the Northern Territory.

A fly fishing oasis

Flicking a fly past the crocs and around the brolgas of the Territory's famous freshwater billabongs is what fly fishing dreams are made of! These are the primary domain of hulking barramundi, leaping tarpon and the prehistoric saratoga. Get your fly deep in amongst the lilly pads, grip your rod tight and prepare to strip strike! 

The saltwater rivers and estuaries are where things start to really get interesting. Here you can expect to encounter the fish a top end fishing tour is all about. Threadfin salmon, mangrove jack, golden snapper and of course barra are just the opening act, wait until the likes of queenfish and giant trevally show up to the party...

No sport or fly fishing trip in the Northern Territory would be complete without sampling the delights of the multitude of offshore reefs and islands on offer. Here you will encounter such bruisers as spanish mackeral, black jewfish and the bigger brothers of the giant trevally, golden snapper and queenfish found in the estuaries. Guided tours in this area will provide you with the ultimate experience and adventure.
